Mountain Weather

Date: 02/22/2017

A Pacific trough off of the West Coast will be broadening and moving east across the Mountain West over the next few days. The jet stream is splitting around Colorado, bringing with it some intense alpine winds that are blowing 25-35 mph this morning and gusting beyond 60 mph. A cold front will stall near the Colorado/Wyoming border today, but we should see an uptick in snowfall tomorrow morning as it drifts south into the Elk Mountains.
