Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Monday, Nov 18 @ 10:48am
| Looking at our first storm of the season on the horizon this week with confidence building we’ll receive beneficial rain and snow. A weak offshore flow will persist today, winds should not be a major factor so much as low humidity and unseasonably warm temperatures with highs in the 60’s. Clear tonight as lows drop into the 20's and 30's. The onshore flow will return tomorrow bringing with increasing clouds and winds throughout the day, cooler with highs in the upper 50's to around 60-degrees. A few showers could break out as early as tomorrow afternoon with rain and snow showers more likely Wednesday into Thursday. This system will interact with subtropical moisture from the south, though it appears the bulk of the moisture will remain to our south & east. With the colder air aloft coming in, the potential is also there for a few thunderstorms on Wednesday. The snow level may climb to above 8,000 ft. initially, lowering to near 6,000 ft. sometime Wednesday into Thursday. The big question is when the snow level will drop, which will make a difference in how much rain or snow we receive. Preliminary estimates call for around a half-inch of rain and a few inches of snow, possibly 3-6", especially above 7,000 ft.; should the snow level drop sooner, higher amounts may result. Low pressure will exit the area by Friday with cool and breezy conditions into the weekend. Long-range forecasts model hint and more cool and unsettled weather into December! With the first storm of the season on the way, now is a good time to get ready for winter weather conditions in the mountains; always carry tire chains and be prepared for rapidly changing weather if you have to travel!
