Mountain Weather 2/9/2017

Date: 02/09/2017

Some morning cloudiness will give way to sunny, and warm conditions today ahead of our next major winter storm arriving tomorrow afternoon. We will see strong solar radiation, light winds, and unseasonably warm temperatures approaching the 40º mark. It’ll be a cooker. On Friday, southerly winds will steadily increase throughout the day, bringing another day of very warm temperatures. Clouds will then thicken mid afternoon, with snow beginning late Friday evening. Models will continue to clarify the accumulation picture, but at this point, the weekend storm is looking like another warm, dense, 1-2 feet of snow. Accumulations already look to hinge on how quickly that rain changes to snow…Yes, rain below 10,000ft changing to snow. But today, SUN!
