.DISCUSSION...An active weather pattern is in store for the
next week with several fronts moving through. The first front
is moving in now and will bring light precipitation and gusty
south winds late Monday night with a snow level falling to around
5500 feet. Any precipitation Tuesday through Wednesday would just
be a few sprinkles or flurries. A very weak disturbance on Tuesday
will be enough to continue better mixing than during the previous
week. Southerly winds will increase and become gusty on Wednesday
afternoon ahead of a strong and wet front that is forecast to
move across late Wednesday night through Thursday. A change to a
colder but continued wet pattern will follow with the next strong
front possible Saturday night through Sunday.
