Mountain Weather 12/13/2017

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/13/2017

Look up today and you’ll see increasing cloud cover in advance of a small storm bringing snow to the mountains tonight. This system is sliding over the top of the ridiculously resilient ridge on the west coast, so it will hit us from the North. Snowflakes will begin to fall well after dark. By Thursday morning, we can expect a couple inches of fresh snow scattered around the southern side of the Elk Mountains. Tomorrow as the storm clears out, the North winds will blow and temps will drop a good 10 degrees over today. Looking deeper into the crystal ball, it looks like we’ve got another chance for snow coming late this weekend.
