March Weather

March 7, 2007

Spring is a season of changing weather, from warm to cold and back again.  And that’s how the long range maps look.  After a warm ridge Sunday-Tuesday, now we have a much cooler atmosphere overhead …the Passes are well frozen this evening.  Warmer southwesterly flow returns Friday-Monday with freezing levels climbing up to 9,000′.  Then a cold trough drops through the middle of next week.  Now the 00z GFS has jumped onto the Canadian bandwagon of strong ridging following that as we head into the St. Patrick’s Day weekend.  Maybe our first 70 degree weather?  We’ll see, but enjoy the changes.  For the next 7 days it still means quite a bit of rain…Mark
