FORECAST IN DETAIL
For 13 of the last 16 days, temperatures have been colder than average. Under increasingly gray skies, we''ll continue that trend over the next several days. The threat of accumulating snow continues for Tuesday and Wednesday, but snow may not be the only type of precipitation to consider.
Today (Sunday): Sunny skies will dominate the early part of the day but clouds will slowly filter in overhead. We'll stay chilly, with below normal temperatures topping out in the low-to-mid 30s. Light winds will develop out of the west at less than 10 mph. Confidence: High
Tonight: A few snow flurries are possible, especially north and west, as a weak disturbance swings through. Otherwise expect mostly cloudy conditions with lows in the mid-20s downtown, and the upper teens in the colder suburbs. Winds overnight will become calm. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through mid-week...
Tomorrow (Monday): The first in the series of fast moving disturbances passes by tomorrow, doing little more than generating considerable cloud cover. Snow showers will largely be confined to the western slopes of the mountains. Temperatures will again top out in the mid-30s, with winds blowing from the north at less than 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: It will continue to be mostly cloudy. Western areas may begin to see the onset of some light snow or flurries by morning but most areas should remain dry. Overnight lows will dip into the low-to-mid 20s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tuesday presents our best chance of snow accumulation so far this season. Snow will likely (60% chance) develop between the morning and early afternoon as low pressure organizes to our southwest. It will be cold with highs at or below freezing. Overnight, the snow may mix with or change to sleet and freezing rain as milder air moves in aloft. It will remain below freezing at the surface, with lows in the 20s. Confidence: Medium
Ice and/or snow likely ends during the morning Wednesday with slow clearing possible later in the day. It will remain cold, with highs in the mid-30s. Confidence: Low-Medium
A second area of storminess may bring more snow and/or ice to the region Thursday or Friday.
