This will be a week of rapid change however with a strong cold front coming through mainly late Thursday.

When the cold front comes through on Thursday, we expect some strong wind gusts along with it due to the clash of warm and cool air.

Once this front moves through, the rain will taper off quickly and the high temperatures will be significantly cooler with falling temperatures through the afternoon Friday and on Saturday only reaching the 40s.

Because the front moves so fast on Thursday, it doesn’t have a chance to put out much rainfall. Models show less than an inch of rain falling with the front and subsequent passing showers afterward.

A second round of cold air will reinforce the first round of cool air, keeping highs early next week in the 40s once again meaning it’s time to bundle up. A new round of precipitation will also form on the northwest breeze, causing upslope snow to mix with rain in the high terrain.
