Sunny through Thursday, Cold Storm Friday into Christmas Eve

Category: Weather
Through Thursday

Highs into the 40's through Thursday, and plenty of sun. Winds are light today top to bottom so the weather will be beautiful.  Then it starts to get breezy again up top starting Wednesday with gusts to 30 mph.

Models Looking Snowier Friday

Friday a cold trough will dig down the West Coast bringing the possibility for significant snowfall into Friday night.  Looking at the latest model runs we could see 1-2 feet of snow by Saturday morning.  The snow levels are low enough for all snow to the base.

Christmas Weekend

Behind the storm the weekend looks like it may be cold and dry with highs in the 30's at base level and 20's on the mountains.  We may see another snowstorm roll in for Christmas Night that could bring several more inches into Monday. The forecast models are in disagreement on whether or not this storm reaches us.

Next Week

Next week may be slightly warmer and dry, or cold with several storms moving through. The forecast models are in disagreement on the pattern.  If the trough holds together Sunday night into Monday then we may see snow and several light snow events next week.  If the storm cuts off from the flow and sits off the coast all week it may be dry.  Hopefully we see more agreement in the forecast soon.
