We got through this warm front portion of the system everyone! Now its time for the cold front but this cold front will move through relatively quickly bringing the snow back to the mountains, and bringing our temperatures back down. Since the front is moving quickly, it should not effect the river flooding problem and rivers will likely go back to normal. Monday, we are going to see showers throughout the day with a high near 50 and a low near 42 with the cold front moving in overnight bringing us some bands of rain also kicking up a little bit of wind between 9 and 13 mph. Tuesday, we are going to see showers most of the day following the front with a high near 46 and a low near 36. Wednesday, we will see a slight chance of rain with a high near 44 and a low near 36 with the rain picking up a little bit overnight. We are under a flood watch until Monday afternoon but that is not our biggest risk. Landslides are a significant risk for these next couple days as the soil is so saturated. The saturation level is so high that the landslide likely hood is above the USGS landslide charts. A couple more upper level systems will impact the region during the next week but the landslide risk will decrease as the week goes on. Everyone enjoy your weeks!
