Mountain Weather 12/7/2017

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/07/2017

That was a chilly night; the coldest of the season so far for our alpine terrain. Under the influence of the North winds, our temperature inversion broke down last night, with sub-zero temps measured up high and low’s in the single digits around the valley floor.
This cooling pattern will continue throughout the day, and the North winds will blow stronger than what we’ve seen all week as this Northerly jet stream slides overhead. This same North flow will build clouds over the high peaks, maybe even dropping a snowflake or two over the Divide or the upper Brush Creek zones. Rest assured, the Pacific coast deflector shield remains intact, and tomorrow we’ll be back to mostly clear skies and start into a gradual warming trend to carry us through the weekend.
