Weather fit for daffodils and dandelions

It is that time of the year when we can expect most any kind of weather. Most are thankful for moisture in any form and it looks like this week those will get their wishes granted as another weather system rolls through from the Northwest. You will see the winter weather advisory for the mountains below.

The daffodils and dandelions are both out so it is surely spring!

After today we can say goodbye to our 60 degree readings. Along with the moisture and cold front we expect to see temperatures drop into the 40’s after today for daytime highs. That means that some areas above 4,000′ could easily see any moisture falling turn to snow, depending on the time of day and the temperature.

April showers bring May flowers so we shouldn’t be surprised. The ground is warm enough at the lower elevations that any snow that might mix with rain will melt easily into the ground.

I hope you have a pleasant day!
