Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 11/30/2019

Yesterday’s storm dropped between 2-16” of snow across our forecast area with the Kebler Pass area and Schofield Pass seeing over 12” (1” SWE) of accumulation, but accompanied by strong to extreme winds. Yesterday at 4pm, Scarp Ridge at 12,000ft recorded an 84 mph wind gust, and although winds have subsided slightly, gusts are still kicking into the 60mph range at 5am. As we wake up this morning, light snow will continue to diminish across our western and northern forecast area as residual moisture lifts with yesterday’s system onto the northern plains. Minimal additional snow accumulations are expected across most of our forecast area, however, the usual snow globes near Irwin and Schofield Pass may collect an additional 2-5″ today in cold, northwest flow. The temperatures above 11,000ft are hovering around zero, with frigid windchills. Looking ahead, high-pressure ridging will take hold into early next week.
