Mountain Weather January 11, 2015

Date: 01/11/2015

The current weather system has the moister but is currently lacking the lift necessary to produce widespread snowfall. That’s like showing up to the party with a bowl of gravy, but no turkey. The western portion of our area is good at creating lift and producing orographic snowfall and this will be where we see the greatest accumulations today. Snowfall accumulations are looking better on Monday night into Tuesday as two weather systems merge, helping to create more widespread lift and higher snow accumulations. A dried out turnkey and empty bowl of gravy look to be in store for Wednesday afternoon through the weekend as a weak high pressure ridge builds.
