Mountain Weather Summary

Tuesday February 19, 2019

Yesterday began with sun in many areas, clouds increased midday to bring light, scattered snow flurries, and then broke up again in the afternoon. Daytime high temperatures reached near 20F and wind blew light from the NW. Overnight, skies cleared and temperatures dropped to near -5F. Wind speed increased slightly to blow moderate in the Soldiers while wind in the rest of the forecast area remained light from the NW.

Today will be mostly clear, sunny, and cool. Daytime highs will struggle to reach the low teens F as cold air filters in from the north. Cloud cover will spread from the NW to the SE this evening to bring snow showers across the forecast area. Snow accumulations will favor the Sawtooths and Western Smoky mountains with 4-8 inches while the Wood River Valley and Soldier mountains are on course for 2-5 inches by the end of the day Wednesday.
