As we say goodbye to October at the end of the week, we will welcome some of the first more winter-like weather patterns of the season. For Wednesday, a cold front will bring scattered showers and high temperatures that will drop into the upper 50s. That front passes through by Thursday leaving behind partly cloudy skies and continued cool temperatures. Things rebound Friday (partly cloudy skies with a high in the low 60s), and really rebound Saturday (Sunny with low 70s.) Conditions for the Nevada Day Parade on Saturday in Carson City should be ideal, although it will be crisp in the morning so wear some layers.
But the warming, while fortuitous from a timing point of view, will be short-lived. Another series of storms move into the region beginning Sunday, giving us a slight chance of showers at least through Tuesday. And each wave gets colder so that it’s even possible that snow levels could come all the way to the valley floor by Tuesday, although there’s still a lot of uncertainty to that.
One final reminder…Daylight Saving ends early Sunday morning, so set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed Saturday night.
