The freeze/thaw cycle at its finest. After Wednesday, daytime temperatures look to stay well above freezing (32°) but drop into the mid-20s overnight. Slick ice has a chance to turn soft (if not slushy) during the day and refreeze overnight. If the trails stay open, best time to ride will be early morning.
Very little precipitation will fall between now and early March. A light rain Friday, spits of rain/snow Sunday and, if we stay cold enough, maybe some snow next Wednesday.
Our snowpack peaks late winter into early spring. in general, snowpack in cumulative and does not significantly decrease until melting offsets replenishment by new snowfall. Daytime length increases most rapidly during late March - the point at which days become longer than nights. This is when daytime melting exceeds new snow accumulations. I fear our fatbike riding days in plush snow are numbered.
Summer brings warm afternoons perfect for biking, but the summer heat and humidity can also spark thunderstorms and severe weather. Be prepared for any type of adverse weather headed your way with Aeris Pulse.
