MOUNTAIN WEATHER FOR 11,000FT. Sunday 3/22

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/22/2020

The brief summary; small or quick storms keep moving through our area today, Monday, and later in the week. This is going to keep snow surfaces fresh and riding quality high. Yea baby.

A shortwave is currently moving across central and northern Colorado this morning. We’ll see snow showers during the AM hours, then drying in the PM hours today. Looks like we could have a nice, late afternoon, on our hands with partly cloudy sky. Unfortunately, we are starting to catch the edge of increased upper-level winds. Alpine weather stations are showing an increase in the wind this morning and look to remain in the 15 to 25mph range with some stronger gusts.

Dry weather continues overnight and into Monday morning. The next storm will bring increasing clouds on Monday with precipitation starting in the afternoon. By Tuesday morning we are looking at those snow accumulations stacking up in the 4 to 8” range. I’ll take it.

Dryer westerly flow sets up for Tuesday before more unsettled weather returns for the 2nd half of the week.
