We should see a few showers over the next couple days but amounts look meager

We have onshore flow and mildly unstable air over the area currently which could result in a few showers anytime, but the chances are pretty low for most folks. There is a trough in the Pacific Northwest which will work its way south tomorrow through Thursday which will bring more light shower possibilities but this is a cold system with little overall moisture associated with it, so total rain potential is limited.

Snow levels are currently about 5000ft but should lower to about 3000ft by early Thursday. What is interesting is that Thursday afternoon the area will be under the cold air aloft from this system so higher elevations could see showers on Thursday afternoon and isolated thunderstorms are also possible, but again most folks locally don't live in those higher elevations so impact should be limited.

I don't think we see much rain with this system, less than .50" and some will see no rain at all. I think most places are .10" or less.

Temperatures will be below average into Thursday, in the 50s and lower 60s. Friday into the weekend temperatures rebound into near average territory.

After this system it looks quiet. There appears to be a trough passage Sunday but doesn't look very favorable to produce rain locally and after that doesn't look like much is happening.
