After about two weeks of mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures we’ll see a return of the cool and wet weather.  We’ll notice an increase in cloud cover tonight as the cold front approaches the Nothstate with the first rain drops arriving Tuesday morning.  As the cold front passes we can expect periods of moderate to heavy rain tapering off before noon.  There may also be enough instability for some isolated thunderstorm activity.

We’ve got another chance for showers and thunderstorm On Wednesday along with gusty south winds.  Snow levels will start off around 4500 feet on Tuesday lowering to as low as 3500 feet by Wednesday as the cooler air moves in behind the cold front.

The forecast models continue to bring us an off and on chance for rain through at least the beginning of next week with some of the heavier rain falling Friday and Saturday.  Tuesday and Wednesday could give parts of the valley about an inch of rain and we could add at least another inch if not more for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  This won’t be a drought buster but it will be good to get some decent rain and snow in the Northstate.
