High winds will still plague the area Wednesday (A Wind Advisory continues till 11 PM Wednesday) as a cold front will move through the region. Along with the winds, the mountains will see rain turning to snow Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning as the snow level will drop from about 7,000’ to the valley floors. The mountains could see a couple of inches at Lake level to nearly a foot up on the ridge tops.


Futurecast conditions for Wednesday Night, 10 PM.

As for the valleys, the high winds will create a lot of shadowing, so valley precipitation will be limited if present at all. The foothills could possibly see an inch or more by very early Thursday morning, but it is unlikely the lower valleys will see any accumulation.

The front passes through quickly and the skies should at least partially clear by Thursday afternoon, and conditions should warm up from the 40s on Thursday to the 50s on Friday to the upper 60s on Saturday.

Another weak to moderate storm system comes through the region late Sunday into Monday bringing back another round of scattered valley rain showers and high mountain snow.
