Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/31/2018

A developing and intensifying winter storm will continue to slide into Colorado from the desert southwest today and churn through the day and into the new year. Though the meat of the system and favorable orographics will sag across the Four Corners and along the southern Colorado/New Mexico border, the western half of our forecast area should receive a solid 4-8+” of low density snow before the sun pops out for the rest of the week. Favorable NW flow will kick off the storm and slowly transition to more westerly orographics as the system slides southeast. Model trends over the last 24 hours have been increasing accumulations, but winds look somewhat unfavorable, so some uncertainty remains.
