CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/20/2018

The big bad wolf tried to blow my house down, but thankfully it’s still standing. A deep trough of low pressure over the western US slung a brief and potent blizzard at us yesterday evening. Snow totals came in below the forecast amounts, but the wind certainly performed.
As the trough axis slides overhead today, we’ll see light snow showers continue over the high peaks under a West Southwest flow, with stinkin cold temperatures, possibly the coldest daytime highs so far this winter.
