A Milder Monday

Skies are sunny today and milder afternoon temperatures will promote a good deal of snow melt. Another blast of cold air arrives on Tuesday and Wednesday, before temperatures moderate for Thursday. After yet another cooldown on Friday, the weekend does look a bit milder again.

Forecast Discussion

Temperatures rebound nicely this afternoon out ahead of the next cold front that is scheduled to pass through first thing on Tuesday. With highs approaching the 50-degree mark this afternoon, that will melt a bit more snow.

Meanwhile, the front will bring another shot of cold air to the Foothills for Tuesday and Wednesday. We can’t even rule out a stray snow flurry wandering out of the mountains during Tuesday afternoon. The main story will be the colder air for Tuesday night and Wednesday as a Canadian air mass returns.

Thursday will be briefly milder, before the next cold front knocks back temperatures for your Friday.

Temperatures will moderate again for next weekend. There could be some light rain entering the picture by Sunday out ahead of the next cold front.
