Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

Date: 04/17/2019

The low-pressure system responsible for the unsettled weather is currently centered over the California/Arizona border this morning with the trough axis forecasted to pass over the area by this evening. The system should track over central New Mexico leaving the CB area well north of what little energy is available. Overall this system continues to look unimpressive and will struggle to produce accumulating snowfall for the area. Today you can expect the possibility of some light snow showers with a couple of inches if we are lucky and light westerly winds with some gusting.
As the low-pressure passes by this evening, a ridge will build immediately behind. Thursday, Friday, and the first half of Saturday will be clearer and warmer with a return to beautiful spring weather. Models are predicting a return to unsettled weather for Saturday evening continuing into Monday but we will see how that plays out in the coming days.
