clouds vs. sun... (pm.18.feb.11)

skies are mostly cloudy late this afternoon, after a day when there was a continuous back and forth between the sun and the clouds.  we did manage to reach a high temp of 51.4F (10.8C) which was the warmest since last sunday!

the first in a new series of disturbances is crossing the area today, but a slightly stronger one is on the way for the weekend.  there isn't much moisture available, and the dynamic energy is not impressive... but we could still eek out a few showers on both saturday and sunday... with several inches of snow likely in the mountains above 2100m (6900ft).  there will be a break in the action on monday into tuesday, but then another disturbance... possibly a little stronger... will move in by wednesday.  temperatures will struggle to moderate just a bit, but will remain well below normal for the latter part of february...
