Rain, snow and cool outlook in the days ahead
October 7, 2017
Rain is in the forecast for Saturday, but it's coming hand-in-hand with cooler temperatures, with the snow level dropping to 5,500 feet and more gusty winds.

The day is expected to dawn partly sunny, but the clouds are expected to roll in, bringing a 50-percent chance precipitation, rain in the valleys and snow up high. Overnight, the chance of precip remains at 50-percent, with the snow level dropping to around 5,000 feet as the thermometer drops down toward the freezing point.

The temperature is expected to reach a low of 33-degrees and skies should clear as Sunday dawns mostly sunny. The sun, however, isn't expected to bring much in the way of warmth, with the thermometer on climbing to about 55-degrees before the sun goes down. Overnight lows are expected to hit the freezing mark and the snow line dropping another 500 feet to 4,500.

Monday and Tuesday are expected to continue clear and cool, and the thermometer is expected to take another dive on Wednesday, with a daytime high of 49-degrees and a 40-percent chance of rain and mountain snow through Thursday.

Temperatures are expected to stay in the mid- to upper-40s through the following Monday, when the mercury is expected to crest at 51. Overnight lows are expected to stay just above freezing.
