The tail end of yesterday’s storm fizzled, bringing only a few inches of snow to our zone. Temperatures across our mountains are all subzero this morning under light northerly winds. Its -16*F in town. Brrr. Pack an extra puffy today: we’ll warm to single digits in the mountains. The trough that brought us a white Christmas has split, with a closed low in development over Southern Arizona. This leaves us out of the storm track and away from strong gradient flow over the next few days. This equates to dry weather and temperatures plunging below seasonal norms through the weekend.
