Mountain Weather 4/5/2017

Date: 04/05/2017

Yesterday’s storm was like a bad houseguest. It didn’t bring much and stayed too long. Up in the high country, there was a lot of pomp and show as the squalls lingered, but in the end, new snow totals only ranged from 3-4 inches in the western part of the zone, with 6 inches in upper Taylor Park.
Now the western US sits under a broad ridge of dry high pressure for the next couple days. Today promises lots of sun and a quick rebound to warm temperatures with a fresh breeze from the Northwest. Tonight we’ll see a strong freeze, and Thursday high temperatures will creep above normal as the flow turns westerly.
