The FL will spike at around 1400 meters today, then will slowly drop to around 900 meters by this evening. An upper level trough will push through tonight into Thursday with light precipitaion, with hopefully some moderate/heavy snow in the alpine by Thursday night. A series of frontal bands will continue to bring overcast conditions with variable precipitation amounts into Sunday. A high pressure should gain some strength either Sunday or Monday.
