CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/16/2016

Our forecast area is just a bit to far south for the current storm as we are currently sitting behind in the previously predicted overnight snow numbers. Around I-70 and into northern Colorado are currently doing well and near their predicted overnight snow numbers. We still have a few hours to see accumulating snow before drier air begins working in and ending snow showers by mid-day Sunday. The mountains west and north of Crested Butte may see some lingering light orographic snow showers lasting later in the day. We’ll also see some decrease in cloud cover this afternoon into tomorrow but still expect mostly cloudy skys during this period.
Monday will be a lull in weather as we await the next surge of moisture to arrive Tuesday evening, with continued mild temperatures during this period. We’ll look into snow numbers for this next system tomorrow morning. Looking further ahead, the end of next week looks like we’ll see another weather system and more snow.
