Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Sunday, Feb 18 @ 10:23pm WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT!
An arctic low-pressure system will dig south into the Great Basin overnight ushering in gusty winds and much colder temperatures with scattered snow showers developing. West-northwest winds 20-30mph at times with occasional gusts near 40mph possible; the snow level may even drop to around 2,000 feet by sunrise with a few inches of snow possible; travel with caution & carry chains, roads may become icy! Expect variable cloudiness through Monday with a few isolated snow showers still possible, otherwise windy and very cold with temperatures only in the 20's throughout the day. The frigid temperatures and gusty winds expected much of this week will be the main weather story, temperatures running 25-degrees below average, factor in those cold northerly winds and we could experience wind chill values near zero at times; bundle up! Residual moisture should clear out by Monday night as we struggle to make it back above freezing through midweek, topping out around 40-degrees by Thursday, while overnight lows drop into the teens and single digits, a few locations could even hit zero-degrees; definitely the coldest temps so far this season. Another weak, yet cold system is forecast to brush the area Friday bringing another round of snow showers; longer range outlook keeps us somewhat cold and unsettled through the end of the month, with another, stronger looking storm possible towards early next week! If travel plans take you into the mountains this week, be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions, dangerously cold temperatures and always carry tire chains. Due to the frigid temperatures expected, when traveling, it's also a good idea to carry extra food, water and warm clothing or blankets in the unlikely event you become stranded.
