A long-lasting ridge of high pressure keeps temperatures slowly climbing upward through most of the week, with mainly sunny skies. It'll be a very nice end to January.

Our next weather maker will be significant with this morning's data starting to converge on a Friday night to Sunday morning solution, bringing a blend of rain and snow. This system will not be particularly cold, meaning the rain/snow line will be elevation dependent. At the moment, if you're above 6500 feet in elevation, you should expect mainly snow. If you're in the downtown Springs, it'll be a mixed bag, but mainly snow on Saturday. If you're in the southern or eastern parts of our area, you'll see more rain than snow. Exact amounts and other impacts still need to be nailed down.
