Mountain Weather 12/30/15

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/30/2015

A broad trough is stretched across the western half of the country, centered to our south. This is feeding cold, arctic air into the state. Shallow moisture arrives under a weak shortwave today, bringing light snowfall to the Elk Mountains. Another shortwave moves overhead tonight, with additional flurries and reinforcing cold air. The western edge of our forecast area could see upwards of 6″ or 8″ out of this disturbance, with an inch or two on tap for the mountains near and east of town.
