During this period, winds can make driving difficult for high-profile vehicles and visibility may be reduced by dust and sand in the deserts. Kodesh recommends that families wanting to head to the snow wait until the weekend when winds will subside and slightly warmer temperatures are likely.During the day Friday and into the weekend, stormy conditions should subside, Midcap said. Sunshine will return to warm the county up a bit, but temperatures will remain on the cool side.”The morning hours will bring you a few more chances of sprinkles but as the day progresses Friday should be clearing, predominately bringing you to mostly sunny or mostly clear skies,” Midcap said.Then be prepared for a chance of rain nearly every day next week.”There’s a bit of a trend that stays with us for the next 10 to 14 days,” Midcap said. “Cooler weather and a chance of system after system bringing us blustery weather and showers.”None of these [systems] look like any intense rainmakers but, nonetheless, we’re finally getting that touch of winter.”
