Mountain Weather For 11,000FT. Wednesday 3/11

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/11/2020

A low-pressure system just off the southern California coast forced a blob of moisture towards Colorado that will impact the area today and tonight. Clouds will be on the increase this morning as the moisture builds. Along with the southwest moisture, a shortwave disturbance will push through the northern part of Colorado during the second part of the day helping to produce accumulating snowfall. Snow totals over the next 36 hours look to be minimal but maybe just enough to improve surface conditions.

A short period of drier weather will develop during the second part of Thursday through Friday morning before a stronger and wetter system arrives in Colorado. A healthy stream of moisture is associated with this weather maker, but the bullseye will likely be over the San Juan Mountains. Look for better details and snow totals tomorrow morning. Keep your fingers crossed for a powder day this weekend.
