Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/22/2019

That pesky ridge of high pressure will slowly ooze its way to the east today as we will find ourselves on the western side of the ridge axis. This will mean some high-level clouds will spill into the area today with warmer air as well. The clouds and warmer air will help to erode the nasty, frigid inverted temperatures we have been experiencing for the past few days. Temperatures will remain cold, near or below 0, this morning for valley bottoms, but will continue to be downright pleasant at middle and upper elevations. Expect Sunday and Monday to produce similar weather with a change coming late on Monday into Tuesday.
The next opportunity for the area to pick up accumulating snowfall looks to be later in the day on Tuesday and carry into Christmas on Wednesday. A more active pattern will set up for the rest of the week, but models are not pointing towards impressive precipitation totals. The bottom line will be two more days of insignificant weather with warming temperatures and a chance at several modest storms for the rest of the week. Waking up to a power day on Christmas sure would be a great present.
