Mountain Weather 2/5/2017

Date: 02/05/2017

Not too much excitement in today’s weather. Westerly flow will stream high clouds through the area creating partly cloudy sky. Ridgeline winds will be lower than yesterday with similar high temperatures. This afternoon we’ll see clouds begin increasing ahead of the next wave of moisture. Those building clouds will keep low temperatures from dropping much. Monday morning we’ll see snow showers develop, with rain possible below 8,000ft. This won’t be much problem for our area that is mostly at higher elevations. The western portion of our forecast area looks favored as we see snow showers through the mid-week. Winds will also be on the increase this week too, as a westerly jet stream sits overhead.
