CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 04/08/2017

Last night was downright balmy with overnight freezing levels near 12,000ft and partly cloudy sky. We could see a couple hours of sun this morning poking through partly cloudy sky, then clouds will thicken through they day. I’d expect some more green housing through the clouds creating a warm feel, and high temperatures near or just below yesterdays. Southwest winds will remain strong and gusty as the pressure gradient tightens ahead of a low presser trough to our northwest. Moister associated with this flow may bring some high level showers today that will mostly evaporate before anything hits the ground. Temperatures should begin cooling tonight ahead of an arriving cold front as moister wrapping around the foot of the low pressure trough increases to our north. We should see a few inches of new snow overnight but the main event will be to our north. Sunday looks to remain overcast and breezy with a drying trend starting in the afternoon. Next week will remain dry with the next small disturbance looking to be around Wednesday.
