Mountain Weather January 8, 2018

Date: 01/08/2018

We have another one of those January spring days coming up as we await the next change in weather tonight. Valley low temperatures are in the single digits this morning while higher elevations are in the 20 to 30-degree range. Mountain temperatures will jump above freezing today as warm is pushed into the area on southwest flow. A Low-Pressure system is hanging out on the California coast today (poor beach people). That low-pressure system will push moisture into our area this afternoon with increasing clouds and snow starting around midnight. We should wake up tomorrow with a few inches accumulated and see snow showers continue into the mid-day. A closed low will then track south of Colorado through the mid-week keeping us in unsettled weather. Wednesday is looking best for accumulating snow but we’ll have to see where this closed low tracks. Northwest flow will finish out the week with a disturbance toward the end of the week, but looks to miss us to the north at this point.
