Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/02/2020

Sure is a nice surprise for an uncertain storm plagued by poor model agreement to over-deliver. The cold front stalled overnight right where it needed to, and snow will linger in the highest terrain benefitted by orographic enhancement this morning, and we may see a few snow showers this afternoon as well, spurred on by convection and daytime heating (much like summertime thunderstorms). Westerly winds will slowly decrease throughout the day as last night’s storm departs eastward. Expect cooler air will linger today and tomorrow, before a gradual but steady warm up this week under high pressure. Next weekend looks to be the next snowmaker, but details are sketchy at this point.
