Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

Date: 04/11/2019

The low-pressure system, from yesterday, produced from 3″ to 10″ of snow as of 5am this morning. The low-pressure center has moved to the east of Colorado, but residual moisture will continue to stream into the area under NW flow. This wind direction will favor locations from Kebler Pass to Schofield Pass with lesser amounts for the interior parts of the range. Up to an additional 2″ to 4″ could fall today for the snow favored areas. Winds will remain out of the NW for the day and will continue to blow hard enough to transport the new snow. Looking towards Friday and the weekend, models are showing another system moving into the area, but it does not look impressive and may only produce showery precipitation into the weekend.
