Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Wednesday 3/25

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/25/2020

A large trough over the Pacific NW will slowly migrate southeast today bringing a strong 170 kt jet stream directly over Colorado. This will leave our area under WSW flow which will transition to SW tonight and tomorrow as the trough digs south. That strong jet stream will drive winds to the surface again today with some enhancement from afternoon heating. Expect passing clouds, warm temperatures, and gusty winds through the day and into this evening with a slight chance of a passing snow shower.

Similar conditions look to develop tomorrow as the trough pulls closer to Colorado. SW winds will be strong and gusty with passing clouds and similar highs as today. The main trough move through Friday with increasing chances of snow and cooler temperatures.
