For the forecast, a vigorous Pacific frontal system is pushing through our region this morning with moderate to heavy precipitation in a Southerly flow. The front should move out of the zone by early Saturday morning with a break in the weather for Saturday afternoon. The next deep low will send another front through Saturday evening into early Sunday morning easing off by Sunday afternoon. A large upper level trough is forecasted for Sunday night into Tuesday with cool showery conditions. A dirty ridge will likely build for Wednesday allowing us to see how much it snowed in the alpine. The FL will fluctuate between 1600-1900 meters over the next few days. Stay dry!!
