Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/14/2018

Get above those hefty inversions this morning! -10ºF in the valleys, but +20 at ridgetops as of 5 am!
Strong upper-level ridging will continue across much of the mountain west as the jet stream is pushed north toward British Columbia today. Southwest flow will gradually lead to warming temperatures, but inversions should persist. The continued line up of storms stacking into the Pacific presses our current high pressure westward over the weekend. Bottom line: Look for a few more days of clear skies, breezy ridgetop winds, and cold overnight lows before our next chance of precipitation next week, but the closed low nature of next week’s system does not inspire confidence in much precipitation.
