Mountain Weather for Friday, February 13th, 2015

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/13/2015

Today, look for mostly clear skies, light winds, and temperatures pushing 40 degrees.

The Baja Low has re-established itself over, well, Baja once again…and that damn high pressure has strengthen over the western half of the United States…again. But…there is a war being waged in the Gulf of Alaska, as a firehose of Pacific moisture is bombarding the dome of high pressure and something has to give eventually. Early next week..the good guys finally prevail, and moisture begins to sneak its way into the Great Basin, along with colder temperatures. This may be the beginning of a larger scale pattern change…but we’ll humbly oblige with a few inches of snow to get things going around Tuesday.
