First Alert Weather
Showers will continue to pass through the Northstate tonight and linger into Monday but mostly for the mountains. The main system remains well to our north keeping the stronger rain and snow out of the area. We may still see some snow fall as low as 3500 feet early Monday morning before increasing back up to 5000 feet by the afternoon. Light accumulation is expected but could make for some slick roadways so double check for any chain restrictions before heading out Monday morning.
A ridge of high pressure is expected to move in by Tuesday helping to cut off the stream of moisture and keep conditions warm and dry throughout the day. Afternoon highs in the valley will reach back into the 70s with the 50s and 60s in the mountains. The dry weather may be short lived as forecast models are still bringing a weak system through in time for Wednesday. Most of the moisture will remain to out north but we could see a few showers in the mountains and possible the northern edge of the valley.
This too will be short lived as the ridge builds back for the last few days of March. Warm and dry weather will prevail heading into the following weekend starting the month of April with plenty of sunshine. Saturday could be the warmest all week with widespread upper 70s for the valley and even a few low 80s possible.
