Mountain Weather for 11,000ft April 8, 2018

Date: 04/08/2018

Thunder Snow!! As of 4:30am the cold front is currently dropping through the Elk Mountains with a few thunderstorms and lowering the snow line down below 10,000ft. We’ll see heavy precipitation and gusty winds as this front passes early Sunday morning. Precipitation will then decrease for Sunday with a few breaks in the clouds as drier air moves in from the northwest. A shortwave trough looks to pass to our north and east on Monday night keeping clouds in the forecast into Monday. A high-pressure ridge will then start building in and bring clear weather by Tuesday.
