Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Friday, March 29.

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/29/2019

Low temperatures are not as low as we forecasted yesterday, but cold air is still working its way into Colorado. Mountain temperatures will see a small increase today, then continue to fall into Saturday. An elongated low-pressure trough has increased winds from the SW and we’ll see those winds continue through Friday before tapering off overnight and becoming northerly. Snowfall looks to start up this afternoon. Unfortunately its nothing too impressive. The old 1 to 3” forecast looks about right for this afternoon. Snow showers look to decrease after midnight and any remaining showers look light going into Saturday morning.

The weather is looking pretty good for those GT racers starting off at midnight for their journey to Aspen. Rumor has it that Emma and Hannah are going to lead the pack to take first tracks on Star Pass, in the couple inches of fresh. Otherwise, with the current forecast showing tapering wind speeds overnight and only light to no snow showers after midnight, it’s looking like everyone should have a great ski to Aspen!

Unsettled weather remains for the weekend with another pulse of snow Saturday night into Sunday. Then the weather will dry out to start off next week.
