There’s a winter weather advisory for Stateline until 11 p.m. as snow showers are predicted for higher elevations this morning and again this afternoon. The National Weather Service is calling for 2-5 inches of snow below 7,000 feet and 5-10 inches above 7,000 feet with higher amounts near the crest.
It was drizzling a bit when I left for work, but it looks like it’s stopped for now. Hopefully that’s not the 70 percent chance of rain we’re supposed to have. The forecast calls for rain after noon, with mostly cloudy skies and a high temperature near 53 degrees. The low tonight will dip a toe below freezing and repeat on Saturday night.
