Heavy Rain, Snow for Tuesday

Winter Storm Warning goes into effect Tuesday afternoon and continues through Wednesday evening. Lots of wet weather this week!

Posted: Mar 13, 2018 7:29 AM

Heavier bands of showers are starting to work their way into the Valley here around 6am Tuesday. Most of the heavy rain is coming in with a cold front, which will kick up the winds and transition the rain into more snow. The heaviest rain looks like it will fall between now and the Noon hour, but steady rain will stick around for our commute home from work and into the overnight.


Winter Storm Warnings go into effect Tuesday afternoon and continue through Wednesday evening. Areas above 4000' can expect up to a 1' of snow piling up during that time. Travel in the mountains will be difficult, if not impossible as the winds start to blow more of the snow around. From Tuesday morning through Wednesday morning, the entire region should pick up about 1.50-2.00" of precip.

Showers stick around into Wednesday, but should be much calmer than Tuesday's storm. We do it all again on Thursday, Friday and Saturday as Storm#2 pushes into the coast. This one looking just as powerful as the first storm, so we'll keep those umbrellas handy and give our car's windshield wipers a good workout.

A good amount of wet weather coming back this week and we have been in desperate need of it!

Sunny skies and hotter temperatures are ahead for today. We'll be very dry and winds will be a little stronger out of the Northwest this afternoon. Fire danger will be elevated for some areas later today.
