AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
LOOKING AHEAD A cooler stretch of weather will continue for the week ahead with a few shots at some light snow. The southern valley could see some accumulating snow during the day Tuesday. Behind that system, some even cooler weather for midweek. But by the end of the week and into Saturday, we'll see a couple days of temperatures well above normal. More snow and cooler weather possible next Sunday.
MINOR FLOODING:The combo of melting snow and recent rain is causing rising rivers in parts of the valley. Some gauge locations have risen above flood stage and will see levels crest in the coming 2-3 days across the north. In the southern valley, most locations have already crested and we'll see levels fall below flood stage in the next couple days. Only MINOR flooding is expected at this time.
MONDAY: Partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies will continue across the area, with scattered afternoon and evening snow mainly in the north.
TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy skies are expected with a chance for snow across mainly the southern half of the valley. Some accumulations will be possible in these areas.
WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY: Some colder air makes its way into the valley for these two days, along with partly to mostly cloudy skies. A flurry or two can't be ruled out.
FRIDAY & SATURDAY: Much warmer weather moves into the valley for a couple of days, with highs 10 to 15 degrees above normal for Friday, and 15 to 20 degrees above normal Saturday. As this warmer air moves in, some light snow is possible, mainly across the northern valley on Saturday.
SUNDAY: A storm system moves into the valley along with cooler air, setting the stage for the possibility for accumulating snow for parts of the area.
