Yesterday’s rain and snow signaled the leading edge of some colder air that’s going to be working into the region today. That cold air has to get here somehow, and Northwest winds are ready to assist. Winds will be the big story today, with gusts of 30-40 mph+ possible in many areas. Temperatures won’t be able to rise much today due to the incoming cold, so look for current temperatures to not change much until the sun goes down, at which point we’ll drop into the 20’s across the area. Upslope snows will be in full gear today with northwesterly winds, but outside of the typically snowy areas, dry and clear conditions are expected today. Upslope accumulations of 3-6″ are forecast in the favored areas, with lighter amounts in the valleys.
