Forecast Discussion

A cold front is blasting through the mountains today. Rainfall of any consequence will be ending this morning, and we expect some clearing to occur during the afternoon. Colder air arrives tonight, and you’ll really be able to feel the difference. Higher elevations of the mountains go below freezing, and there is a novelty item: Parts of the northern mountains will have a few snow flurries late tonight, the first of the season. No accumulation is expected.

Sunday will bright, sunny, but chilly. With Canadian high pressure building strongly overhead Sunday night, winds will go calm and we expect a significant frost and/or freeze for daybreak Monday.

Tuesday through Thursday will be dry, quiet with temperatures hovering fairly close to normal. By the end of next week, we’ll be tracking the progress of low-pressure in the northern Gulf of Mexico to see what kind of wet-weather impacts that might have on the local area, if any.
