Mountain Weather 4/2/2017

Date: 04/02/2017

Clearing skys this morning will allow that strong spring sun to pop out and offer up a great time to get out into the mountains. Ridgeline winds will moderate from the northwest. A small short wave trough will move though early this evening bringing increasing clouds this afternoon and another dusting of snow. New snow accumulating will vary from localized convective bursts as is typical during spring storms. Monday will bring another brief loll in weather before a low pressure trough turns on the snow Monday afternoon into Tuesday. Southwest flow during the Monday-Tuesday timeframe looks to bring around a foot of snow to the 11,000ft elevation. A ridge of high pressure will start trying out the weather by Wednesday.
