Mountain Weather December 24th, 2017

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/24/2017

Well, it sure is nice to be back in the flow after a very dry November and December. Today we’ll see a break in the weather before the next fast and turbulent storm rolls in tonight. While today is a break in the weather its still going to be blustery up there, with west winds in the 20+mph range at 11,000ft. Cloud cover will begin increasing tonight and snow showers will intensify around midnight. This incoming storm will be similar to Saturdays, but with a little less wind. I hope Santa has himself a nice full face helmet and face shield for his adventures tonight because it’s going to be a blustery ride. Westerly winds should ease slightly for Christmas day and snow showers will taper as the day progresses. Northwest flow will take us through next week with some moisture and clouds around, but nothing too notable until maybe later in the week around Thursday.
