A Pacific trough is moving onshore along the west coast today. Satellite imagery shows bands of clouds moving across the west under warm, southwest flow. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds this morning with a general increasing trend into tonight. We may see a few light snow showers in the next 36 hours, but the real accumulations won’t start until Thursday morning. Winds will increase ahead of this system. We look to be on the southern edge of the late-week storm track, but it is looking like 4-8″ could accumulate by the weekend. Stay tuned for changes, and a potentially stronger system early next week.
