Discussion...
made a few minor adjustments to a couple of hourly data sets, but
overall forecast still looks on track. Temperatures have stayed up,
especially in the valley, with south to southwest winds. Temperatures were
a bit higher than guidance suggested today. Still believe most of
the incoming precipitation should be liquid in the valley with some light
snow in the plateau and light to moderate accumulations expected
in the mountains.
