Mountain Weather

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/18/2016

Cold is the name of the game today as northwest flow keeps our mountains blanketed in an arctic airmass. Valley temps are hovering around -10 this morning, and it’s only 5 to 15 degrees warmer in the mountains. If those temps aren’t cold enough, head over to Taylor Park, where the mercury is dipping towards -20. Temperatures will barely climb into the single digits today under partly cloudy skies. Looking ahead, a dry, warming trend will carry us through Monday and Tuesday. A shortwave on Tuesday night brings a quick shot of snow, and then a more powerful Pacific trough takes aim for the end of the work week.
