A skiff, dusting, coating...what do you call a light accumulation of snow? Whatever you call it, a weak low pressure will move through producing a very light accumulation in the lower elevations through Wednesday. There will be some areas that do not get any accumulation, but the places that do will see up to 1-2" at best. The mountains could see up to 4" or 5" in a few spots. With colder temperatures on Wednesday, the snow should stick on some roads making for slippery spots. Highs will only be in the 10s and 20s. Thursday will be a mostly sunny day with highs in the 30s and 40s. The plains will have a stronger wind up to 30mph. Friday will be a mostly cloudy and windy day as the next storm approaches. Highs will again be in the 30s and 40s. Low pressure will move through the state through Friday night and Saturday. The track of this system will favor snow in the mountains along and west of the Continental Divide. East of the Divide will have snow showers, less accumulation, but stronger wind. The wind will really be strong throughout the day. Highs will reach the 40s, with 20s and 30s in the mountains. Sunday will be partly cloudy and windy with highs in the 30s and 40s. Monday will be a little gray with spotty light rain and snow. Highs will be in the 30s and 40s. Tuesday, a warmer airmass will move in pushing temperatures up into the 50s and 60s.
Have a great day!
