Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Thursday, March 28.

Date: 03/28/2019

My previous third eye sunburn has now been burned into a unibrow. The hot weather continues for Thursday. 11,000ft temperatures again had a marginal refreeze last night and will be quick to increase this morning. High clouds are passing over Utah this morning and just nosing into northern Colorado. The morning looks to start off clear, then we too should see our share of high clouds moving in and creating overcast to partly cloudy sky as they pass. There is a chance that the main group of clouds will stay just to our north.

A cold front moving into Colorado tonight will start off a decreasing temperature trend that will take us into the weekend. A low-pressure system then brings moisture into the area on Friday with increasing clouds and 1 to 4 inches of snow on average. Most of the snow will be to our north but we should still see a small refresh. Unsettled weather takes us into the weekend.

Grand Travers weather for Friday Night into Saturday: Recent model runs have pushed the timing of snow showers back a few hours. Now snow looks to develop midday Friday and last into the early evening. Point forecasts are currently showing 2-4” of snow for the Friends Hut area. A mostly cloudy sky will block out the moon so don’t count on the extra light. Low temperatures on Saturday morning for 11,000ft look to be in the mid to upper teens. Westerly winds could be blustery in the alpine exposed sections of the course too. We’ll take one last update and nail down more numbers tomorrow morning.
