The warming trend will continue for Wednesday and Thursday with the warmest temperatures of the season, though there will be a threat of afternoon and possibly evening storms by later Thursday, possibly with thunder, as yet another large storm looks to cross the coast then.
Energy ejected over our area will bring breezy south to southwest winds, moisture and lift that will fuel the Thursday afternoon storms. The new storm is then forecast to move eastward across the Great Basin, with rain showers becoming more likely after noon on Friday, with possibly strong afternoon and evening thunderstorms.
There is still uncertainty in the track of the storm, but it appears that we may have some sun for the mornings of Mother’s Day weekend before more showers reform in the unsettled weather for the afternoon. There may be some snowflakes around during the nights, but the warm nature of the storm should keep accumulating snowfall above 9000 or 10000′.
The storm will be another slow-mover, affecting our weather through the beginning of the next work week.
