Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Tuesday 3/10

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/10/2020

A large cutoff low continues to slowly churn off the coast of California which will push moisture into our region today. A separate shortwave trough will move through the northern and central mountains today, interacting with this moisture and giving us another shot of snowfall. Amounts look to be less than 5″ which will provide a nice refresh to our snowpack. Overnight snowfall will taper off but clouds will stick around as moisture continues to move through in WSW flow.

On Wednesday, the cut off low slowly moves onshore feeding moisture into the region with light snow showers ramping back up. Temperatures will be warm with the Pacific moisture so accumulations are again expected to be light but provide a nice refresh.
