Date: 03/24/2016

A few weak shortwaves embedded in northwest flow today will bring partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies and generally light winds today. A low pressure trough digs out of the northwest tomorrow. We’ll see increased clouds and moderate winds ahead of this system, and sometime on Friday an unorganized cold front swings through the Elk Mountains, spreading snowfall from the northwest to southeast, with winds easing in its wake but snowfall continuing. Snow numbers into Saturday look to be in the 4-8″ range form Star Pass and 3-6″ range for Taylor Pass, with potential for larger numbers in the favored western portion of our zone.
