A warm but soggy week awaits us.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday Friday rain.
We are in for a straight week of wet stuff.
The models show Monday’s rain starting just after 7AM.
it should continue until around 3PM with accumulations around 8mm.
Light showers should begin again late Tuesday morning and lasting through the day with accumulations around 4mm.
A stronger system will arrive Wednesday around noon and deliver more significant contributions through Thursday.
The two day total from 4AM Wednesday to 4AM Friday will be around 60mm. With most of that falling Wednesday night into Thursday.
The model sees a slight break in the rain Thursday night but then we are right back into it on Friday with another strong push of rain lasting all the way through the weekend.
Possible severe rain on Weekend.
The model has amounts up to 120mm for the west coast for each of Saturday and Sunday. So we will want to watch that. It is still too far in the forecast to be certain.
Temperatures remain too high for snow.
If you are hoping for snow for skiing or for the snowpack in general it doesn’t look good this week. The first couple waves of light rain might fall as snow in higher elevations but by late week the bigger pushes should be all warm and wet for all areas.
The Jump Creek snowpack monitoring station south of Mt. Arrowsmith remains at zero much like it was last year at this time.
By this time last year we did have a small amount of snow but the big jump didn’t happen until the 2nd week of February. Let’s hope we get that jump sooner rather than later.
Have a wonderful week! Umbrellas ready!
