Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/08/2019

Here we go…the incoming storm has started to produce accumulating snowfall very early this morning. This system will pile up snow today, tonight, and even linger into Monday. There are a few factors that could potentially boost snow production to the higher end of forecast totals, the first is an associated cold front and the second is good jet support. Currently, wind directions are from the southwest but will swing around to the northwest as the trough axis passes overhead midday. Expect 7″ to 18″ to fall across the CBAC forecast area by Monday morning with the deepest snowfall accumulating from Irwin to Schofield Pass. Winds are expected to be moderate and have enough strength to redistribute the new snow.
Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to be dry with clearer skies, but this dry period will be short-lived as models suggest a return to snowy weather before the end of the week.
