  • Any rain/snow showers taper off this evening
  • Slightly above average temperature TUE-THU
  • Late-week cold front brings big pattern shift


Skies go from partly cloudy to mostly sunny Tuesday with afternoon temperatures creeping to the upper 40s and even a few 50s possible.


High pressure returns for the middle of the week with temperatures at or above average. Highs on Wednesday and Thursday could once again reach the mid to lower 50s in some locations under partly cloudy skies.


A large, amplified dip in the jet stream is expected to dig into the eastern U.S. and push a potent cold front through just before the end of next week. This will usher in colder temperatures and a chance of rain to snow showers in the mountains late Friday into Saturday morning.

Winds will also turn blustery as the colder air rushes in.

High temperatures over the weekend only climb to the low 40s.
