CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/23/2017

The upper jet nosing into Colorado will carry yet another storm this morning, with good precipitation spurred by the upper level jet support slamming into the Rockies and adding good orographic lift. Unlike our last storm, todays weather will be accompanied by warmer temperatures, and much more wind, especially near and above treeline. Wind will begin to really howl starting early afternoon and build through this afternoon. Snowfall accumulations look to be in the 3-6” range on most models today, with more on the way tomorrow night. Tomorrow’s storm will add another boost of snowfall to bring snow totals potentially into the double digits. We will keep focused on today’s storm and wait for this afternoon’s model run to get excited.
