Date: 01/07/2016

The tail end of last night’s snowfall wave is exiting northeast of our mountains this morning with a dry slot of air in its wake. A couple more inches of snow should accumulate before conditions dry out midday. This dryer period will be shortlived, as next complicated trough begins streaming moisture and some additional atmospheric instability over the West Elks by this evening. Showery weather willcontinue through Friday into Saturday, but accumulations look to be on the lighter side.
