Mountain Weather

Date: 03/04/2017

The axis of high pressure passed overhead last night, opening the doors to warmer southwest flow ahead of the next Pacific trough. There is enough high-level moisture for a few thin clouds today, and winds will begin to increase. Tie down your children and small pets tomorrow, winds will be gusting beyond 60 mph as the trough makes landfall. Snowfall will spread into the Elk Mountains by Sunday evening, and we can look forward to a relatively modest refresh by Monday morning, in the 4-8″ range.
