Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/17/2019

Wednesday’s storm was just the pre-show warmup. The real performance is about to take the stage. Thursday will be a transition day. High clouds will begin increasing this morning, after last nights clear sky. We are looking ahead to a mostly cloudy sky with a few breaks. Moisture, like lots of moisture, is about to begin streaming into Colorado on southwest to west flow. Snow showers will begin late today and intensify overnight. We have good moisture, lift, and favorable flow, it’s on people! The temperature at the start of this storm will be fairly warm, with colder air moving in later in the storm. Friday will see snow showers taper in general with some areas seeing those snows last a bit longer under NW flow. Drier weather will take us through the weekend with another storm coming in for early next week.
