Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Monday 3/16

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/16/2020

We have another dry and warm day coming up. Partly cloudy sky remains in Mondays forecast, though I expect to see fewer clouds than yesterday, and the cloud forecast getting closer to few or the mostly sunny line. We didn’t see winds mixings down to mountain top elevations yesterday, 12,000ft winds have increased over the last few hours and we again have the chance for upper elevation winds to reach into the 30’s today. Otherwise expect another day of calm conditions. High temperatures on Tuesday increase another few degrees, but increasing cloud cover may help keep a lid on temperatures getting two crazy.

The mid to late weak weather will come from the low-pressure system moving from the California Coast, up through the desert Southwest and eventually through Colorado. Precipitation looks to start late on Wednesday and could continue through Friday. Snow totals are unsure at the moment and those estimates will be getting dialed in soon.
