Wednesday brings cooler temperatures, a bit of a precipitation

Wednesday, March 10th, 2021 5:40am MDT

A weak system impacts us today bringing early showers and a slight chance for some this afternoon. Today’s weather will be relatively benign compared to what is on the horizon for the weekend.

Cloudy to mostly cloudy skies start us off this morning then we will see some easing in the cover later today. Some rain showers with a few snowflakes mixed in will be seen until about 9:00am when the precipitation should end. We then will warm up and see highs near average for the date. There is an off chance for a shower later today but that appears unlikely with activity really expected to be at higher elevations.

Tonight, partly cloudy skies will be above with lows in the mid-20s.

As for the storm that everyone is talking about, there is a lot of excitement about it but also a good bit of uncertainty. Models continue to differ on the track and speed to the storm, both of course are factors which will greatly affect the outcome.

Generally, the system is expected to arrive late Friday and linger well into Saturday. There will be a great deal of moisture with it which will have the potential to lead to some hefty snowfall totals when coupled with what may be some strong upslope conditions.

At this time the National Weather Service has not issued any sort of advisory but, assuming things continue to progress as expected, we will likely see one issued in the next 24 hours. As we talked about last night, you should certainly not wait to prepare for this storm.
