Clear Start, Cloudier Finish Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature a sunny start and mainly cloudy finish as an upper level disturbance rotates in from the west. That disturbance will bring with it very cold air aloft, while this morning’s sunshine heats up the lower levels of the atmosphere. This will result in a strong vertical temperature gradient favorable for instability. Clouds will form as a result of the instability, and some of those clouds could even develop enough to drop some raindrops or snowflakes, though no impacts or accumulations are expected. The best chance for this will be in the mountains. Highs will range from around 30 in the north to around 40 in the south.
