For the forecast, a vigorous cold front is moving into our area by this afternoon in the wake of a passing warm front. This frontal system will bring moderate winds and heavy precipitation to our area into Tuesday morning. Tuesday is looking unsettled with the possibility of some breaks with cooler temperatures. A series of frontal bands will bring light rain showers to the area on Wednesday through Friday, Thursday could have steady light precipitation.  An upper ridge will begin to build for Saturday with unsettled conditions. As of now the long term models have Sunday as a nice day. Will elaborate on the weekend in Friday's post. We could receive 20 cm of snow in the alpine by Tuesday evening, with the freezing level dropping to 1800 meters by Tuesday, light accumulations of snow through Friday with the FL  slowly rising to + values by the weekend.
