Heavy rain on tap for the start of your work week

Heavy rain, and cool temperatures ahead for your Monday

Posted: Jan 8, 2018 6:48 AM

Wet & cooler conditions are ahead for the start of your work week. Showers from this system look much more substantial than what we had pass through last week, and temperatures will end up cooler as well. Snow levels will briefly dip to pass levels early today, but will then climb to between 7000' to 8000' by early afternoon. Valley areas could get anywhere from a half inch to 2 and a half inches of rain through Wednesday morning. Foothill and mountain areas could get up to 4 inches during that time. Areas above 7000' could get upwards of a foot to two feet of snow this week. Temperatures are starting out in the mid to high 40's in the valley this morning, and in the 30's to low 40's in the mountains. High temperatures are only projected to end up in the low 50's in the valley this afternoon, and in the low to mid 40's in most mountain areas. Winds will be up to 10mph out of the North early today, but will be light for the afternoon.


The threat of heavy rain and snow will continue for your Tuesday. Temperatures will be modestly warmer tomorrow, but will still be chilly. Showers will go from heavy to scattered by Tuesday night. South winds will pick up late in the day on Tuesday, and gusty South winds could be an issue for mountain areas from Tuesday night through Wednesday. Valley areas should be mostly dry on Wednesday, but some mountain areas will still have the potential for more showers through Thursday. Dry and warmer for the end of your week and weekend.

The next chance for showers will return for the start of next week.

The Red Flag Warning continues through Thursday morning, but very pleasant weather is ahead for the remainder of this week. Cooler temperatures and a decent chance for showers return next week.
