Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Monday 3/23

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/23/2020

Monday starts off with a period that we may have few clouds, as clouds that have been pushed in on southwesterly flow decrease, and we await the next storm arriving this afternoon. A small storm is moving across Nevada this morning. We’ll see increasing cloud cover today ahead of that storm, with precipitation starting in the afternoon. A general 4 to 8” of snow accumulating by tomorrow still looks about right. There is a chance we could see some heavy snow showers if we luck out with a piece of good convection passing overhead late this afternoon or this evening.

We are also going to see continued winds with the southern jet stream passing overhead and upper elevation gusts in the 45 to 55 MPH range.

We have some drier air aloft moving overhead for Tuesday, then we’ll land in unsettled weather for the remainder of the week. The next good looking storm arrives around Friday.
