Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Friday 4/17

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 04/17/2020

Overnight dryer air has moved in, allowing mostly clear sky to start the day with a few low level clouds passing through the peaks. Upper elevation winds will keep gusting into the 40’s, before starting to decrease later in the day. 11,000ft winds have already calmed considerably from yesterday. High temperatures today at 11,000ft look to reach up around the freezing mark.

Looking into the weekend we have two small storms that will bring unsettled weather. Saturday’s storm comes from California on southwest flow. This will allow some warmer air to move in and we’ll see high temperatures rise a few degrees. Clouds will have increased on Saturday and snow accumulations look light. The chance for snow accumulations looks a bit better late Saturday and on Sunday, while the next little storm will be working its way down from the northwest for the end of the weekend. All and all, there is some unsettled weather for the weekend with snow accumulations that could slowly add up through this period. The chances for snow further continue into the start of next week.
