We have one more round of weather to get through before the “Unofficial Start to the Summer Season” gets going in earnest. A low pressure center will move through the region on Friday bringing much cooler temperatures to the region and occasional heavy rain. Look for the high temperature to drop to the lower 60s Friday and Saturday, and total rainfall amounts through early Saturday could range from a quarter to a half an inch regionally, with localized heavier amounts.
The cooler temperatures could bring snow levels down to below the mountain peaks, and a Winter Weather Advisory has been posted for the mountains above 8,000’ for Friday, although you might have to get to 8,500’ before you start to see any significant accumulation.
After a few residual showers on Saturday, a ridge of high pressure will build into the region on Sunday and Monday, boosting temperatures into the 70s on Sunday and then into the low 80s on Monday through Wednesday. And while an isolated afternoon shower is a slight possibility midweek, the overall pattern is much drier than what we have seen of late.
