    As of 06:30 we have overcast conditions with limited visibility.

For the forecast, weak front continues to move through the area in a Northwesterly flow aloft, with a warm front approaching later today, becoming a Southwest flow. We can expect another 8-10 cm above 1500 meters by tonight. Freezing levels will rise to 2200 meters briefly Wednesday morning than begin to drop to 2000 meters by Thursday morning. Wednesday will see periods of moderate to heavy precipitation.  The heavy precipitation warning is easing off to 60-90 mm of free water, and for a shorter duration. Would still like to see it go South or North!! By Thursday afternoon a trailing cold front will lower Freezing levels to 1800 meters with some wet snow above that mark. Friday will be unsettled, mostly cloudy with some very light flurries clearing up by the evening. At this time Saturday is still looking like a clear cold day with FL below 660 meters. As always stay tuned for the update tomorrow morning.

    Looking moist for today, with light snow in the alpine!!

    Warm front followed by a cold front.

    Cold front by Thursday.
