Now on Tuesday morning, the base temperature is -5F, the mid-mountain temperature is 15F, and the summit temperature is 7F. This is called a temperature inversion, where you’ll find the coldest temperature at the base of the mountain, and this often happens when we have nights with clear skies and light winds.

On Saturday, you’ll likely find mostly dry and partly sunny weather with perhaps a…Continue
