Mountain Weather 3/5/2017

Date: 03/05/2017

The next Pacific trough of low pressure is coming ashore today as we see a turn back to stormy weather. Ahead of this system today, clouds will be on the increase and winds will be very strong/gusty. We may see a dusting of new snow early this afternoon, while the best snow accumulations will happen tonight. Areas of the forecast favored by southwest flow will see the most snow accumulation, like those in the Kebler Pass and Paradise Divide. The arrival of a cold front will bring dropping temperatures tonight into tomorrow while norther west flow continues to bring cool air into the area as this storm departs tomorrow. The big news for today will be the wind!
