MOUNTAIN AREA — The National Weather Service (NWS) shows a pattern of some precipitation in our neighborhoods for the coming week, starting with a good chance for rain in the foothills starting Saturday, Mar. 10, and snow mainly at the higher elevations of 7,000-feet and above. The storm is expected to come through after 4 p.m.
No storm watches or warnings have been issued at this time.
The wetter weather continues into Sunday, Mar. 11 and Sunday night, then tapers off, say forecasters who predict a sunny Monday, Mar. 12.
By Monday night the weather starts to change again, and overnight into Tuesday, Mar. 13, more rain is predicted to fall in the foothills, with snow likely in the higher country. The NWS says it’s likely to remain wet through the week as the unsettled weather continues. How wet, precisely, remains to be seen.
While you’re watching the weather, remember to set your clocks forward overnight Saturday into Sunday as Daylight Saving time arrives — and change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
