Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Saturday 3/7

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/07/2020

Our next weather maker is a mid-level trough that is currently coming onshore over the west coast. That thing is putting Colorado in warm southwest flow for Saturday and sending a little moisture our way this afternoon that will lead to some increased clouds. Daytime heating may lead to some convective cloud formation and remind us that we are moving into spring. Any associated precipitation looks to arrive late afternoon or in the evening. Initial precipitation could be in the liquid form before temperatures have had a chance to drop. Outside of just the right convective shower lining up, we are not looking at much precipitation.

Saturday night temperatures will finally cool and we could see a couple of inches of snow adding up by Sunday afternoon. Sunday high temperatures will be significantly cooler than what we have seen over the last week and land near the freezing mark.

Dryer air looks to move in for Monday, followed by a return of moisture and precipitation for the midweek.
