Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche CenterWeather

Date: 12/21/2018

Get out of here you lumpy dry ridge from yesterday, and come on in water vapor that wants to turn into snowflakes! Moisture is streaming into Colorado this morning and will bring high clouds for the day. We’ll see this moisture start to turn into snowflakes late this afternoon with a chance to pick up an inch or two before midnight. Next in line is a shortwave trough cutting across the northern half of Colorado on Saturday. This shortwave will bring 3 to 6″ of snow by Sunday Morning! Yea Baby. Saturday night into Sunday will dry out a bit. Then it all happens… CBAC has launched it’s Santa Makes Winter Great Again campaign and Santa has jumped on board! With no border walls to cross to the north, there is an open door for Santa to bringing a couple storms and one big closed low down with him next week. We are looking ahead to an unsettled and stormy holiday week. I’m so happy.
