Five-Day Weather Forecast
Monday: Gradually becoming partly to mostly sunny. Mild.
Tuesday: Partly to mostly sunny. Clouds increase during the day. Windy, with gusts to 20 mph.
Wednesday: Rain likely, some of which could be heavy. Possible thunder. Windy, with gusts to 20 mph.
Thursday: Chance of mainly morning showers, then mostly cloudy.
Friday: Mostly cloudy, with a chance for snow flurries.
Forecast Discussion & Concerns
A strong cold front will blow through on Wednesday with more rainfall (2-3 inches). That front will usher in much colder air that may even lead to some snow flurries by Friday.
The greatest risk for severe weather with that front is expected to stay well south of the plateau. Our threat will be heavy rainfall that could lead to localized flooding.
Forecast 5-Day Rainfall Totals
The risk for heavy rainfall is highlighted below for Wednesday. I’ll monitor that threat for our area.
