Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 04/16/2019

The beautiful weather from yesterday did not last long as today we transition back to a couple of days with unsettled weather. A low-pressure system is currently off the coast of the Pacific Northwest and is set to push on shore. This system will head towards the desert southwest during the day, and begin to push moisture into the area. Temperatures look a bit cooler today as compared to yesterday with mostly cloudy sky cover. Today you can expect some very light snowfall with a better chance of accumulating snow this evening and tonight. Overall this system looks to be fairly weak with snow totals in the 2″ to 6″ range by the end of the day on Wednesday. As the system passes by the area on Tuesday night, expect the flow to turn northwesterly and bring cooler temps on Wednesday. The northwest flow may keep light snow production going for the terrain to the west and north of town on Wednesday.

A ridge of high-pressure should develop over the area for Thursday and Friday with warmer and clearer skies but by Saturday, the unsettled weather looks to make a return under split flow. Snowfall does not look impressive for the weekend, but maybe a slight refresh.
