Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Friday, April 19

Date: 04/19/2019

Another beautiful spring day is coming up. A ridge of high pressure is sliding over Colorado. As it continues to move over today we’ll see the pressure gradient decrees and today’s winds decrease as compared to yesterday. High temperatures yesterday were in the 37 to 40 degree range at 11,000ft. We’ll see those high temps increase another 5 to 7 degrees today. While at lower elevations we’ll see high temperatures reaching up around 50 degrees or even warmer down in the valleys.

Looks like we’ll see a poor freeze on Saturday morning. High temps on Saturday will increase another couple degrees and some high clouds look to move in during the later afternoon.

A small disturbance may bring a dusting of snow on Saturday night. Clouds continue to hang out on Sunday as a larger low-pressure system moves on in. Unsettled weather with some snow will then start off next week.
