They are the surest sign of summer.
The whispers of snow at the end of the week are no longer whispers. The higher elevations above 8,000 ft are expected to have their first brush with winter Thursday night into Friday. The rest of us, most likely, a cold rain. Though it will be chilly, the garden should do fine. Freezing temperatures are not expected.
The colder weather will be a short affair. Warmer temperatures will return over the weekend.
