Forecast Discussion

A ridge of high pressure will crest over the region today as a trough of low pressure approaches from the west for tonight into Sunday. The cresting ridge will allow for above normal temperatures and decreasing winds over the course of the day Saturday. Summit fog will give way to a bit of sunshine early in the day, however, as the trough approaches, clouds are expected to once again thicken and lower. As the trough approaches, a few overrunning showers might reach the summits by the afternoon but the bulk of the showers will hold off until the overnight hours. With a cold front passing overnight, temperatures will be falling causing showers to fall as a mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet or snow. Sunday, the trough will move through bringing a continued chance of showers through the day. With temperatures warming slightly, a mix of precipitation types will continue to be possible. And while winds will be increasing overnight, they will really start ramping up on Sunday as the center of the low exits to the northeast in the afternoon.
