Breezy and damp through Thursday

Rainy and breezy through Thursday. There will be a few dry periods but the overall pattern is damp and gusty. The winds will gust to 25mph all three days. The mountains will get lots of snow. I’d expect at least 8 inches a day up there so there may be some pass delays this week especially Tuesday night and Wednesday night. This is not a major winter storm but since it has been so quiet and mild lately it’ll seem more like a normal winter pattern. Friday through the weekend will be dry. Colder but drier with lows near freezing. There will be some sun too. Walter. 2/4/13
