CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/22/2016

Strong inversions are in place this morning, with mountain temperatures near 20 degrees while valley temps are close to -10. A strong but short-lived ridge of high pressure will bring clear skies, warming temperatures, and calm winds today. Clouds increase on Saturday under strengthening southwest flow ahead of the next Pacific system. Good moisture and west to northwest orographics will once again put the western portion of our zone in the bullseye, with a 24-hour snowfall event kicking off on Sunday.
