It is local lore that summer ends when the mountains receive their first dusting of snow. If that is the case, the summer of 2016 lasted 21 days. July 11 felt more like September after a cold front moved through the region, bringing rain to the valley and delivering a dusting of snow to the high country. The forcast calls for a return to warmer weather with highs in the mid to upper 70s through the rest of the week.
