Our orographic popcorn showers quickly ended shortly after sunset last night in the upper Gunnison River basin, and strong radiational cooling dropped our overnight lows in the valleys to near or below zero, while areas above 10000 feet sit in the 20s at 5am. Sunny skies will dominate today, but look for breezy conditions above treeline. With pretty good model agreement for the week ahead, we can all look forward to a pattern change and significant snow accumulations toward the end of the work week. Yes. The double “S” word…Significant snow… Bears some watching still, but looking promising.
