This morning temperatures range from 28-30 degrees F with winds from the northwest averaging 15 mph at upper elevations. Clear skies and temperatures just below freezing allowed the snow to refreeze overnight.
Today will be especially warm with high temperatures climbing into the mid 40s F, and winds will remain light.
A few high clouds may arrive late today and winds should pick up a little from the southwest ahead of a cold front arriving Saturday. A few snowflakes may fall tomorrow with no accumulations. Overall temperatures begin dropping tomorrow and will be in the teens F by Sunday. Most of next week should be cold with a good chance for snow Tues/Wed (maybe 10-20 inches).
early this week (6-8 inches) gave a nice refresh to the snow surface as Ted found in Whitney Basin yesterday
. On south-facing slopes, it has been through two melt/freeze cycles and should be "corn-ish" snow this morning as it warms and melts. The snow on north-facing slopes became damp yesterday and should have an ice crust on top this morning that will soften as it melts.
