Mountain Weather

Date: 12/06/2016

A shortwave trough is approaching from the northwest this morning. Snowfall should spread into the Elk Mountains around noon today. Winds will increase and snowfall will intensify as the trough and associated cold front pass overnight. Look for 4″-8″ before the trough exits with an arctic air mass in its place on Wednesday under cold northwest flow. Dig out those extra puffy layers…it will be the coldest temps of the season. We’ll see a brief clearing on Thursday before snowy weather returns through the weekend.
