A few showers Sunday then rain and Mountain snow on Monday. Clearing for Christmas Day.

Posted: Dec 22, 2018 9:37 PM

Sunday will be cloudy and cool with some light showers possible in the afternoon and light snow in the mountains with snow levels 5000-6000 feet. This is from a weak storm passing over our area on Sunday.

Monday a stronger storm will move in. This storm will sweep across the region with moderate amounts of rain and most valley areas getting .50-.75" of precipitation. The big story with this Christmas Eve weather sytem is snow. Snow levels will start out near 6000 feet but drop to 5000 feet or possibly lower during the storm. Most areas above 6000 feet will get near one foot of snow from this storm and some locations could get nearly two feet! Chains will be required for most mountain drives and there could be delays and/or road closures.

On Tuesday, Christmas Day rain and snow showers will taper off in the morning leading to a partly cloudy and chilly day for your holiday. Temperatures will be cool.

Meanwhile the rest of the week after Christmas looks dry at this time!

A fire weather watch has been issued from 1pm Monday to 11am Wednesday in the Valley and foothills due to dry and gusty conditions. We'll warm up next week but next weekend is looking much much cooler and wet.
