Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

Date: 02/08/2019

A transient, fast-moving ridge of high pressure worked drier air into the Elk Mountains overnight and established some frigid inversions once again. Currently, lower elevations are sitting at -10 to -25 and ridgetops are holding tough in the single digits above zero. High pressure will be pushed eastward throughout the day before another round of snow develops late Saturday. Westerly orographics, cold temperatures, and a 100kt jet aloft will increase winds and kick to life more snow, especially across westerly snow favored areas. The unsettled pattern continues into next week, with all models showing more Pacific moisture, but disagreeing on timing and intensity at the moment…
