Welcome back winter! The elongated low pressure system and associated cold front swung through the Elk Mountains last night and are now rotating northeast towards Wyoming. Lingering snow showers should wind down through the day under moderate alpine winds. The next Pacific system moves on shore this evening, but drops down to Mexico as it progresses inland. We can expect conditions to mostly dry out for the rest of the week, with a chance for some light snowfall on Wednesday as that larger system wraps moisture around to our south and east.
