Mountain Weather

Date: 02/11/2017

A closed low off of the California coast is streaming unusually warm Pacific moisture into Colorado today, supported by a 130 kt jet stream. We will see a lull in precipitation this morning with the freezing level hovering around 10,000 feet. A cold front sags south into the Elks around mid-day, sparking heavy snowfall at all elevations. Look for another foot or more to accumulate by tomorrow morning, with winds gradually easing through the storm.
