Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

Date: 01/11/2019

Those cold valley inversions got pushed out last night with temps around 20 at both valley elevations and 11,000ft. We got a dusting of snow overnight with CBMR getting 50% more snow then the typically favored Irwin. Unfortunately, we are only talking 2” vs 1”. This is the setting for this storm, as more snow will accumulate further east, primarily in the Sawatch and out to the Front Range. We’ll continue to see overcast sky in our forecast area and could pick up another inch or couple today. Winds look to tick up slightly this afternoon as well. Looking at the weekend, we’ll continue to see clouds hanging out in the area and a couple more inches of snow toward the end of the weekend. Looking at the start of next week, moisture appears to undercut the high-pressure ridge we were talking about yesterday. More on that later, but for now it doesn’t look like clear weather to start the weak.
