Colder air arrives Saturday with rain in the lower elevations and snow across the highest terrain of the mountains. 1" to 3" of snow is expected, generally above 4000 feet, with local amounts up to 4" possible.
Scattered showers will continue across the forecast area well into Saturday before tapering off Saturday night as the upper low responsible for recent rains moves off to the northeast. Significantly colder temperatures will move in tonight and tomorrow, even low enough to result in some snow showers above 4,000 feet tonight and Saturday before rainfall ends. Expect highs in the upper 40s to low 50s tomorrow at low elevations. However, dry weather and a warming trend will allow temperatures to rebound Easter Sunday into early next week as highs climb back well into the 70s.
