CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/16/2015

The last low pressure has moved off to the east while cold air remains in place today under northwest flow. We may see a few orographic showers today, but there isn’t much moisture to see anything exiting. Mostly we’ll be dealing with cloudy skys. Wednesday night into Thursday morning, a wave in this northwest flow combined with some other lifting mechanisms and more available moisture will bring good snowfall to northern Colorado. Our area is a bit south of the better looking snowfall, but we should still see a few more inches of snow arrive with increased northwest winds. A small ridge starts building Thursday night bringing dryer weather and slowly rebounding temperatures over the following days.
