FORECAST:

A warm frontal band in a Westerly flow aloft will bring periods of light precipitation for today into Wednesday morning. The freezing level could go as high as 1800 meters. A very weak ridge builds for Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday morning before the arrival of another weak front.
The FL should drop back down on Wednesday, hopefully to the valley. Thursdays front will be on the warm side as well.  Some models are suggesting a stronger front for Friday but sitting on the fence on that one. More on that as we get closer. Guesstimates: 14-18 cm ? by Wednesday morning above 1800 meters, 4-8 cm by Thursday morning, trace-2 cm by Friday morning.
