Mountain Weather January 8, 2015

Date: 01/08/2015

The high pressure over the Great Basin continues to drive mild weather under northwest flow for the next few days. A colder air mass is dropping along the Great Plains today, which will have minimal effects on us except for slightly cooler temperatures than the record-breaking high temps we saw the past two days. The cooling trend progresses into the weekend as the ridge begins to deform. By Sunday, a more active weather pattern develops, but models are still in disagreement on the details. Look for a return to snowier weather by Monday and Tuesday at the latest.
