Sunday was another chilly, showery day for mid to late May as more raindrops fell this morning and afternoon. Temperatures remained 20+ degrees below normal with Valley highs staying mostly in the lower 60's. Expect scattered showers to continue into this evening, heavy at times turning until finally clearing overnight.

As for the mountains the weather for you is really much more like winter than it is like Mid-to-late May. Rain in the mountains is changing over to snow somewhere around 5000 feet. Expect snow levels to stay that low overnight and heavy snow is possible. Chain controls are likely on some mountain passes and a Winter Storm Warning has been posted through Monday morning.

For all of us on Monday there will be some breaks and even some sunshine is likely at times. Temperatures on Monday will warm up too, back into the mid to upper 60's to near 70 for the Valley. However, it will be short lived as another cold storm will move in Monday night and into Tuesday. This storm will be weaker bringing only light scattered showers to the Valley but snow is once again possible in the mountains from this system down to 5000 feet.

Finally, Wednesday and the rest of the week will be drier with a few showers still possible and cool but Valley temperatures should get back into the 70's.

Rain and snow showers will become heavier and more widespread on Friday. Snow levels will drop as we head into your weekend, and then we'll dry out on Sunday.
