“The Dude,” our name for the storm that lingered on the coast for a week, and rolled through the Elk Mountains yesterday, bowled a resounding strike. Schofield recorded 2.4″ of water and field team from the Grand Traverse reported close to two feet of new snow. In short, the crest of the Elk Mountains got pounded.
Temperatures dropped to the teens last night, but this morning the sun will crank the temps back above freezing quickly. By this afternoon, the increasing southwest winds will usher in high clouds ahead of a weak system clipping Colorado on Sunday.
