Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 6:34AM

Windy & Colder

Early spring thunderstorms this morning were kind of refreshing. Except the part where I could see the lightning through my eyelids at 4am. A sharp cold front moves through this morning introducing a strong northwest wind. The upslope flow may contribute to some light showers before lunchtime, especially along the western slopes. Otherwise the afternoon becomes sunny, cooler, and windy.

As colder air envelops the region tonight flurries are possible early Friday morning. I can see a quick skiff or dusting for the highest, westward facing slopes early tomorrow. Full sunshine returns thereafter but it remains cold and windy Friday. The weekend is split between a very nice Saturday and a very wet Easter Sunday.

Forecast Discussion

Chilly air arrives today behind a cold front that scoots through this morning. We'll have some residual light showers in the mix before midday followed by generally clear skies this afternoon. Clouds return overnight as the core of the cold invades. There will be a spell of early morning flurries (scattered snow showers up top) for a few hours leading into sunrise Friday morning. Add wind- gusts in the 45-55 mph will be common this afternoon through Friday daytime.

High pressure quickly shuffles overhead Saturday leading to brilliant sunshine and a relatively warmer afternoon, though the morning is cold.

Low pressure moves from the Southern Plains to the Great Lakes Sunday and Monday. It's a dynamic spring storm system with severe weather in the Deep South Sunday in the warm sector and snow in the cold sector over the Upper Midwest. A soaking rain, perhaps heavy at times develops Sunday morning and continues through the day and night. Thunder isn't entirely out of the question here. Rain tapers off Monday morning followed by a warmer afternoon.

Tuesday is a "tweener" with a good amount of sunshine, but colder air slowly creeps southwards. Meanwhile low pressure spins up from the northern Gulf heading northeast. Moisture returns late Tuesday night, perhaps beginning as snow or even staying mostly snow for the higher elevations Wednesday. We'll see... that's a week from now... just getting you ready :-).
