Mountain Weather 12/27/2016

Date: 12/27/2016

Some of the season’s coldest temperatures will greet you as you step out the door this morning after a clear and calm night is pushing double digit below zero readings in the valleys (-26º in Taylor Park), while up on Scarp Ridge (12,000ft) we’re seeing a balmy 16ºF above zero. Strong solar will bounce temperatures into the mid teens today.  Looking ahead, winds increase tomorrow, along with a chance of flurries on Wednesday as the northern jetstream dips south. We’ll see quiet weather until the weekend, when it looks like another active pattern sets up to kick in 2017.
