Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Sunday 3/8

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/08/2020

What is going on with the weather this week? Well, basically old man weather gave a small child a low powered squirt gun and sent him to go play off the west coast of California. That child has no rime or reason for his actions and is sporadically spraying down the Western US. Sunday afternoon and the Tuesday/Wednesday timeframe appear to be the best-organized weather out of this mess and our best chances for accumulating snowfall. Unfortunately, these don’t appear to be big snow numbers. Though, springtime convection could lead to some more intense pulses of snow and help add up some new snow.

Other than that, we are sitting under southwest flow and high temperatures will drop 10 to 15 degrees as compared to the last few days. Clouds look to decrease a bit on Monday and hopefully, we have a couple of fresh inches of snow by then. By next Friday that small child off the west coast will finally start moving across the desert southwest in the form of a low-pressure system. There is hope that we could see a good storm during that time, but we’ll have to wait several days to see how that system is going to track across the US.
