Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Thursday 4/9

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 04/09/2020

Clear sky overnight has helped cold air pool in the valleys with a good freeze at lower elevations, while 12,000ft elevations recorded low temperatures closer to the freezing mark. Temperatures at 11,000ft will again rebound into the mid to upper 40’s today. Winds remain light and we are sitting under south to southwest flow. This morning’s cloud clover should push out for a period before we see A bit of moisture start getting pushed into the area this afternoon bringing a return to an increase in cloud cover. Then snow baby! There will be flakes, but they don’t appear to stack up much, or at all, by Friday morning.

The closed low to our southwest that has been talked about all week is still hanging out down there. The low never directly impacts Colorado as was once hoped. Instead it brings us a little unsettled weather here and there, before it eventually gets pushed east. For the weekend we will move under northwest flow. That will put us in a decreasing temperatures trend with our next chance of snow arriving Saturday Night.
