More active weather in the forecast
Thursday had quite the mixed bag of weather. We saw everything from snow, rain, gusty winds and small hail. It was just another spring storm in the Rockies. Also, Brundage picked up 4” of snow! Well now we catch a little break Friday as high pressure builds in for one day. Look for mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and it will be a bit breezy and warmer with highs in the upper 50’s.
By Saturday, another weak disturbance will cross Idaho. This will bring a few more clouds and temperatures will warm into the mid 60’s. Sunday will be the warm before the storm. A south flow is going to commence ahead of the next front that moves in on Monday. But Sunday will prove to be the warmest day of the week with highs approaching 70 degrees. We’ll see increasing clouds later in the day. This will be followed by a chance of showers late Sunday night.
The Monday storm looks impressive for now. This storm will also have the potential to pack a rain/snow mix for the valley floor, snow in the mountains and gusty winds. Our temperatures will go from 70 degrees on Sunday, down to low 50’s on Monday.
Most of our reservoirs are running 80-90% full and we haven’t even triggered the spring runoff as of yet. So going into the summer months our water supply is looking just fine. Especailly when we keep getting more snow in the mountains and foothills.
