Mountain Weather Summary

Saturday February 25, 2017

Yesterday, the mountains looked to have picked up 1-3” of new snow. Remote weather station snow sensors have become unreliable in certain areas and some new snow amounts are only estimates. Temperatures rose to the teens F with Baldy reaching 26 F in the early afternoon. Wind blew light from the west and skies were overcast to obscured before dissipating some in the afternoon. Overnight, cloud cover diminished and temperatures dropped to at or just below 0 F.

Today, no moisture should enter the area, temperatures will only reach the teens F, and skies should be mostly sunny. Light to moderate NW wind should blow on ridge tops except for the Soldiers where moderate to strong wind will prevail. There should be a slight increase in wind velocities in the early afternoon. Overnight, temperatures stay above zero but only in the single digits, ridgetop wind will be moderate from the NW-W, and clouds will increase into Sunday morning.
