Date: 02/06/2016

A strong ridge is continuing to build over the western US and will bring us dry weather and a warming trend starting next week. Before we can make the transition to this dry weather pattern we’ll see one more blip in the flow roll in tonight. We will be on the southern edge of a very weak shortwave trough tonight that could bring some increasing clouds and gusty winds. Northern Colorado will see strong winds in the 50’s, but we should be just outside of these stronger winds. Still our mountains will see some stronger gusts and wind speeds in the 15-25mph range at 11,000ft.
