CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/16/2017

High clouds and light south winds will temper daytime high temperatures slightly from yesterdays blistering heat, but only temporarily, and only just a little bit. Expect rapid warming late morning, and high temperatures stretching into the 40s at 11,000ft. Temperatures will only increase, as will the second and third degree “goggle tans,” err….sunburns, on those that ignore sunscreen. Mud season seems to have arrived, and will continue to liquidate our snowpack until late next week when a fairly significant storm looks to slam into the Elk Mountains. Just in time for the Grand Traverse… Stay tuned.
