CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/28/2017

Cold, clear nights and sunny days look to re-gain their chokehold over the next week as high pressure over the western United States annoyingly re-builds. Look for breezy NW winds at higher elevations and temperatures climbing into the upper 20s above the stagnant valley inversions. Looking ahead, pretty darn far ahead, 500mb winds do shift into northwesterly flow around January 4th, bringing with it the chance for Pacific moisture riding these driving winds into the Elk Mountains. Still over a week out, and confidence is always low looking that far ahead, but worth mentioning. Something to keep spirits high in that post-holiday Post Office line?
