Last Updated on May 4, 2020 7:44 am

After high temperatures in the 70s and 80s over this past weekend, a cooler week is on tap with the possibility of winter weather for the weekend.

High temperatures for today (Monday May 4) are forecast to be in the upper 60s, Tuesday upper 50s, Wednesday through Friday in the mid 50s. Precipitation wise, chances of rain are expected tonight through Wednesday night and then again on Friday.

Low temperatures in the 40s are forecast for tonight and Tuesday night, upper 30s Wednesday night, lower 40s Thursday night, mid 30s for Friday night, and falling into the lower 30s on Saturday night.

The other weather story will be the possibility of snow and the frost/freeze potential. In a Monday morning briefing, the National Weather Service (NWS) stated that Northwest flow and cooler temperatures are making it seem likely that much of the higher elevations will see some snow on Friday. However, NWS also states, “anything that does fall will have to fight warmer ground temperatures as well as high solar-angle to rapidly met anything that sticks.”

Frost/freeze headlines are looking very likely for the High Country, NWS also notes. The growing season has begun and typically the High Country experiences its final frost/freeze around Mother's Day weekend which happens to be this coming weekend.
