Mountain Weather For 11,000ft Tuesday, December 3rd

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/03/2019

Warm and Gusty winds about sums up today’s weather. A disturbance passing to the north will toss a few flakes our way and bring mostly cloudy sky, while the upper-level jet is passing overhead and keeping winds elevated for the day. That Jet starts to drop south tonight as we see wind speeds ease off and overnight low temperatures dropdown around 20.

The next low-pressure system will start pushing moisture back into Colorado on Wednesday under southwest flow. We’ll see mostly cloudy to the overcast sky again, but nothing too exciting on the snow front as most of the storm’s energy stays south of our area. By Wednesday night and into Thursday Morning a shortwave or disturbance in that southwest flow looks to turn that available moisture into a few inches of snow for our area.

Drier weather returns for Friday and into the weekend with the next potential storm currently looking to arrive Sunday night through Monday.
