|Kirkwood Valley, April 17, 2016. There is about 15 more feet of snow on the ground right now.|
There seems to be some more agreement this morning that clouds will move in overnight. The rain should hold off during the morning hours on Friday, but when this storm does hit, it will be fast and furious. The bulk of this system is just to our north, where they will get hit hard on Friday afternoon. Here we can expect some strong winds in the morning, maybe going slack in the afternoon, with up to an inch of rain in town, with more in the mountains. Rain continues overnight, but clears out quickly on Saturday morning. Totals in town could exceed 1.5 inches. So this is a quick, big hit. Followed by a nice weekend. Sun comes out, and we warm a bit
Rain looks like it will return on Sunday evening and last into Monday morning. This storm is now looking to be a bit mellower, but as we have seen this week so far, spring time is hard to forecast. Up until yesterday afternoon it looked like we would clear out for the week after Monday, but we now may be expecting some weak waves moving through. Something to watch.
