The dense fog advisory has lifted and clear skies remain.
After the fog and low clouds have departed, leaving a beautiful day before a much colder system moves in from the Gulf of Alaska. This is due to an upper level disturbance centered out over the Eastern Pacific which will be tossing lots of moisture back our way. It will start very warm, and snow levels will correspondingly be high – around 5000 ft – but they will quickly fall overnight as the colder air moves in from the west. The one thing with this storm is we aren't expecting much rain from it. We picked up almost an inch of rain from the last system that moved through, but we will struggle to pick up half of that as most of the precip will stay in the mountains.
Later this week another high will build in from the west, clearing the skies out once again and bringing back the warmth we saw two weeks ago. With the clear skies and warm daytime highs, we will likely see the cold and frosty overnight temperatures return with another valley inversion set up.
