Weather Discussion & Outlook

Ridge of High pressure over us this morning will be shifting east of the Rockies today. Temperature inversions hung in there yesterday in JH, and kept valley much colder than mountains. Temps should even out more today, as winds increase and help mix the atmosphere, and cooler air aloft begins moving over us when an upper level Trof of Low pressure swings thru tonight. Clouds increase this afternoon and prices should arrive by evening, and still warm enough to start as rain or a mix in the valley. Mountains should pick up 4 to 6 inches at the higher elevations from this little weather system as it passes over us tonight and early Wednesday. Temps cool enough for a little snow in town early Wed. as well. Generally dry & a little cooler Thursday thru Saturday, as we come under a more Northerly flow that increases on Saturday. Little bits of moisture cycle over us Thurs./ Friday, maybe causing an isolated mtn snow shower. Otherwise, dry thru most of Sunday. Clouds increase later Sunday and flow aloft becomes more Westerly. Looks like after the Super Bowl we could start picking up some snow again, and maybe getting into a little cycle of snow Monday thru Wednesday of next week. Don’t bet too big on that just yet…the weather, that is.
