Mountain Weather 2/7/2017

Date: 02/07/2017

Today will be an interesting day to watch play out as a very strong jet stream (140kt) just to our south inches farther north, creating windy conditions near and above treeline, and spurring heavier snowfall. Previous models suggested lower elevations to be fighting the snow/rain line down valley, but that does not look as likely anymore. However, expect heavier, dense snow falling especially near and below treeline. Tonight, snow and winds will peak, before tapering off Wednesday afternoon. Storm accumulations look on track with 1-2 feet possible by Wednesday afternoon. Thursday dry and sunny, before another storm takes aim for Friday and Saturday.
