CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/23/2018

Snow showers will continue, and become more steady throughout the day with accumulating snow across our forecast area. Although southwest flow is less than ideal, it will provide just enough moisture and orographic enhancement to get another good dose of that cold smoke when combined with our single digit temperatures. The unseasonably cold temperatures are not ideal temperatures for the big time snow we all know and love, but at this point, we’ll take it. As we see daytime heating, a convective element will contribute to sometimes heavy snow showers dropping snowfall rates to 1-2″/hour. Snow will continue tonight, with winds shifting to the northwest (creating the possibility of deeper accumulations in the Kebler and Schofield Pass areas), before an intensifying low pressure center rips any remaining moisture from our area and onto the eastern plains. An active pattern persists through next week with more snowfall expected.
