Mountain Weather

Date: 03/15/2016

Snow will gradually taper off shortly after sunrise in most locations, with the highest terrain holding onto snow showers most the day. After a bit of a lull midday, another round of snow looks to develop across our area mountains mid-afternoon, with the heaviest snow falling after sunset. Strong west to northwest winds do not look like they will subside until after the large scale trough passes tomorrow. Temperatures look ideal for snow production over the next 24 hours with temperatures around -10ºC at 10,000ft and -25ºC at 18,000ft giving good instability for the orographic machine to churn.
