Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche CenterWeather

Date: 02/07/2020

Overnight, temperatures at all stations climbed steadily throughout the night as westerly winds cranked in the 30-50mph range. Some area locations have warmed over 35 degrees since Wednesday evening. A large plume of deep Pacific moisture will continue to be pushed into the central Colorado mountains. This moisture will produce an additional 6-12” of snow into Saturday morning. Saturday morning should see partial clearing on all but the highest peaks of the Elk Mountains, before a secondary wave of moisture is showing potential in latest model runs to spur additional accumulating snowfall into early next week potentially. Bottomline, expect continued snowfall and westerly winds to continue today, through most of weekend. Stay tuned for additional updates as this complex winter weather system unfolds.
