Mountain Weather

Date: 12/28/2016

The Elk Mountains are under strong zonal flow today, with the jet stream just to our north. This morning, alpine winds are blowing steadily in the mid-20 mph range, gusting into the 60’s. We will see a few orographic snow flurries today and continued winds, before a high pressure ridge develops tomorrow into Friday. This brings a warming trend and a reprieve from the wind. The next system arrives Friday night and we should see multiple days of snowfall into next week.
