Mountain Weather 12/19/15

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/19/2015

A the high pressure ridge axis moves east of us today, we will see warm southwest flow ahead of the first in a series of Pacific waves. Mountain temperatures will climb into the 30’s above valley inversions today with clear skies. Tomorrow, a poorly organized cold front swings in from the northwest, bringing showery snowfall beginning midday. Accumulations should be less than a few inches by sunset. Unsettled weather continues early next week before a more powerful system arrives Tuesday into Wednesday. Details to come.
