My intention with the title of this post was intended to describe the nature of the precipitation over the next 24 hours or so. Then I realized I feel a bit isolated and scattered as well. So I left it as is.
The dewpoints at the surface in the lower and mid-elevations are pretty low right now. Low enough that it is going to be difficult saturate that layer sufficiently to produce some light showers and snow showers. Until then, anything that tries to fall from the sky will likely evaporate before reaching the ground. The higher the elevation, the better the chance that snow showers will develop.
The models are really not predicting anything measurable in the lower elevations.
Here is the Euro
And the GFS
Snow levels will stay around 7,000-7,400 feet later today and tomorrow. Assuming it moistens up enough for something to fall.
I realize these are small amounts of precipitation but these little amounts continue to grow the snowpack.
Tomorrow I am going to talk about Spring’s struggle around here lately. On again, off again, currently on again for mid-week!
