Spring Break 2015 remains in full effect today, with mountain temps climbing from 30’s this morning to the high 40’s or low 50’s. The large scale weather pattern begins to change this afternoon. The low pressure system that has been parked off of Baja for the last week will move inland, bringing warm, moist air overhead. A shortwave dropping from northwest tonight will bring more lift and colder temps to help kick off the potential for snowfall. Additional energy and moisture will boost the chance for snow Wednesday night into Thursday. This system is complex and we might get surprised, but it doesn’t look too exciting for snowfall accumulations,
