Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Monday 3/9

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/09/2020

The small trough that produced about 1 to 4” of snow in the last 24hr is now heading east. The upper atmosphere has dried out on Monday morning, while low-level moisture is holding clouds and some very light snow over our forecast area this morning. It looks like that low-level moisture is going to hang around for the majority of the day keeping us on the mostly cloudy side of the line. Upper-level clouds will just start to increase this afternoon as well. We’ve seen another small dip in temperatures behind the trough passage as well.

The closed low is still hanging off the coast of California. That low will spit moisture into our area throughout the week, though the pattern is a bit sporadic and not exactly set on how its all going to play out. Tuesday looks like the next organized chance of snow and accumulations across the forecast area look to be in the 1 to 4” range again. Unsettled weather could return again on Wednesday, Thursday looks a bit transitional, then Friday into Saturday morning could have some better snow totals. On Friday the closed low turns into an open wave and moves across the desert Southwest. This storm looks like it will be far to our south but we have a reasonable chance to see some good moisture pushed into our area.
