Mountain Weather December 25, 2014

Date: 12/25/2014

The Christmas storm is well underway this morning! The Pacific trough moves through the Great Basin today, before closing and slowly moving across Southwest Colorado tonight. It then opens and lifts through Colorado on Friday. Flow on the radar this morning is from the West to Southwest, which is favorable for our mountains. We can expect to see 6 to 12 inches of snow by tomorrow morning, with orographic snowfall lingering Friday. A drying trend begins Friday night into Saturday before unsettled weather returns into next week.
