Mountain Weather

Date: 03/30/2018

Yesterday’s showery snowfall along the Elk Mountain spine produced about 1″ of new snow in the Kebler and Schofield Pass areas, with winds gusting into the 20s and 30s overnight.

Clear skies will take hold as the ridge wobbles over the central Rockies. Northern Colorado may see redeveloping snowfall tonight, but the Elk Mountains should stay dry with only an increase of clouds expected. We should see 5-10º warmer temperatures across the forecast area as flow shifts from the northwest to more westerly, bringing in warmer drier air from the Great Basin and Utah desert. Looking ahead, the flow stays dry, with gradually warming temperatures through the weekend. Long term looks dry as well, with a Bering Sea ridge setting up over the Aleutian Islands and that high pressure steering significant moisture south toward Mexico.
