Mountain Weather 2/8/2017

Date: 02/08/2017

The snow and wind peaked early this morning, and we will see high pressure begin to push the back end of this storm out of the area by mid morning.  Light orographic snowfall may hang on across the highest terrain near Crested Butte, but by this afternoon, we will see clearing skies and temperatures plummet.  Thursday will be mostly sunny, before another large and prolonged storm (though even warmer than this storm with rain at lower elevations), looks dead set on the Elk Mountains starting Friday and lasting through much of the weekend.
