Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Tuesday 3/17

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/17/2020

A broad area of Low pressure off the coast of California has cut off from the main flow and will be slowly drifting south today before energy splits and stalls over the Great Basin. Under moist southerly flow, we will see another mild day with above-average temperatures and passing clouds. Winds will increase as the pressure gradient tightens and the jet stream moves closer.

Expect clouds to increase tomorrow as the splitting shortwave moves closer drawing in even more moisture in SSW flow. Temperatures will cool a bit tomorrow with cloud cover and increasing winds. Significant precipitation looks to hold off until late tomorrow into Thursday when the shortwave finally moves through with unsettled weather hanging around the Western US through the weekend.
