Snow Report 1-24
Clear skies and 22° at the top o' the morning and a small breeze out of the southwest at just 3mph. It is shaping up to be a beautiful weekend! We could see a few clouds develop at the day moves on, but that is expected to blow through in the overnight hours giving us plenty of sunshine all weekend with highs in the low to mid 40s and overnight lows in the 20s.
Looks like a chance of snow has crept back into the forecast for Monday, but that has already waffled a dozen times since last week, so check back for updates.
