Tomorrow is a dry day between Pacific systems, then a cold front sits almost directly over us for about 24 hours from Friday to Saturday morning. Models are a bit wetter with this too; showing an inch or more rainfall over the western valleys…nice, just what we need. This won’t be enough to bring flooding back though after 3 days of light or no rain between the new system and Monday’s.
Translation = Rainy all day Friday and a good chunk of Saturday too.
Bad news too for ski areas, the snow level will be at least up at 7,000′ or even higher on Friday and possibly into early Saturday…so ski Thursday or Saturday PM.
