Two more storms will affect our area for the next week, with continued wet and cool weather forecast for the majority of the following week as well. Unfortunately, the local Central Park construction project, already delayed by easement issues for two and a half weeks before it was even started, will likely fall further behind.
Cool and breezy northwest flow will keep the weather unsettled today, though we may see some clearing in the afternoon as the storm moves east of our area.
There will be a break Sunday night into Monday morning before breezy southwest winds and possible afternoon showers develop ahead of the next, colder storm in the wave train forecast to travel across the northern Colorado border on Tuesday. Monday’s afternoon showers will turn into more persistent precipitation around Tuesday afternoon and last through Wednesday morning before becoming showery again by Wednesday afternoon behind the departing storm. This storm will likely bring several inches of snow to the valleys and possibly 5-10” on the mountain by Wednesday afternoon if the current forecast holds.
There may be a break in the inclement weather for part of Thursday, though current model trends have that less likely, before the second storm, forecast to cross the central California coast on Wednesday and then travel across the Great Basin, brings showers to our area as soon as Thursday afternoon and threatens another cool and wet weekend.
