Wet and Breezy Monday, dry for the Holiday

Monday will be wet and breezy with mountain snow. There will be snow on the passes especially Monday evening. This looks like the only bad travel time over the passes for the next week. Moderate rain for the lowlands and gusts to about 25mph. Christmas Eve and Christmas day will be dry. Some fog will be around but dry for the holiday. In fact, after Monday’s rain it looks dry all the way through next weekend. Speaking of Dry, Fall 2013 only had 50% of the normal rainfall. Most of that came in September. 2013 will go down as a DRY YEAR. 14 inches less rainfall than in 2012. Walter. 12/22/13
