A frontal boundary will track east today, crossing through the region early tonight. Expect showers to ensue this afternoon and continue overnight. That’s not what ski enthusiasts want to hear but we definitely need it as we are in a moderate drought.
High pressure settles in for a few days beginning tomorrow. Clouds will be on the decrease and temperatures will be cooler than today, but near normal for this time of year. Winds will be rather breezy though. Wednesday will see mild temperatures and an abundance of sunshine.
A very strong cold front will pass through the region on Thursday. Widespread showers during the day could briefly changeover to snow showers at night once colder air arrives behind the front. Accumulations are not expected though.
This frontal passage will bring about much colder temperatures for the end of the week, especially Friday, but snowmaking conditions still won’t be ideal. A couple nights of snowmaking will go a long way though to improve conditions at the ski areas for the Christmas holiday.
