Mountain Weather February 10, 2015

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/10/2015

A band of moisture and a cool front is moving southward from Northern Colorado early this morning. As it passes over the Elk Mountain, we will hopefully see an inch or two or snow, but there could be convective component that brings localized heavier showers. The NOAA discussion this morning mentioned the threat of an isolated lightning strike. As if we don’t have enough concerns to deal with this time of year in the mountains. The trough retreats and closes off to our southwest on Wednesday, bringing upslope dynamics to our east and a faint chance for some light spill-over snowfall. High pressure returns under dry northwest flow for the remainder of the week, bringing back warmer than normal temperatures.
