CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/19/2018

We will see the beginnings of a change in the weather this afternoon. Warm, mild southwest flow will dominate today, bringing high clouds and balmy temperatures to our forecast area. The much anticipated storm system seems to continue to stall in the last 48hrs worth of model runs. This system will bring strong winds ahead of the precipitation, as well as rain/snow line considerations as high as potentially 9500ft. before the cold front sweeps across Colorado just after sunset tomorrow. Once the cold front (finally) moves through  Saturday evening, winds will shift dramatically, bringing significant snowfall. Looking like a hot and heavy 3-6” with the cold front and another 3-5” Sunday. The possibility exists once again that cold, northwest flow treats those certain areas near Kebler and Schofield Passes right, and snowfall exceeds the forecast numbers currently.
