Mountain Weather For 11,000ft Tuesday, December 4th

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/04/2019

A closed low is currently hanging out in California surfing the beach break. That low pressure will push moisture into Colorado on southwest flow today. We’ll see building clouds, becoming overcast and possibly spitting a few flakes in the late afternoon. A shortwave disturbance in the flow arrives overnight to help get the snowmaker going. WSW winds will start to become west and increase with the snow, but those increased winds don’t look to stay elevated on Thursday. The general 3-6” is looking legit, with peek precipitation currently around the 6am to 10am the timeframe. The Kebler Pass and Paradise Divide areas could luck out beet the high end of those snow numbers.

Snowfall will taper off through Thursday as we look towards a drier west-northwest flow for Friday and Saturday. The next storm currently looks to arrive for Sunday-Monday.
