Clouds will be on the increase Wednesday but the rain isn’t expected to arrive until the second half of the day for most of us. The heaviest rain is scheduled to arrive Wednesday night into Thursday morning with gusty south winds. The rain will taper off a bit on Thursday but the chance for showers will continue throughout the day with a break in the overnight hours. There may even be enough instability for thunderstorms Wednesday night and Thursday. Snow levels will start off above 6000 feet with a small window dropping to as low as 4500 feet behind the cold front on Thursday.
The next storm will arrive Friday but the heaviest rain is expected to be to our south. That being said, the flow around the area of low pressure will still give us plenty of rain with snow levels between 5000 and 6000 feet. There will still be a chance for isolated showers on Saturday before it dries out on Sunday.
Once all is said and done the valley will pick up about 2 inches of rain (give or take). Hardly enough to get us out of our drought but still a good amount in a three day time frame.
