Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/18/2019

The abundant moisture that has been streaming into Colorado on SW flow overnight has made a lovely impact on Colorado with good snow totals for many areas and mountains. Precipitation rates look to start backing down after sunrise this morning. We’ll probably see lingering snow showers through noon in the Crested Butte Area as a building ridge to our west starts shutting down the moisture tap. Orographic snow showers should continue longer in the Kebler Pass and Paradise divide area as the flow becomes to west and northwest throughout the day. A cold front has also moved in with temperatures continuing to drop after sunrise and they will be slow to increase today. Dry weather is in the forecast for the weekend. Models are showing some moisture coming over the ridge that could lead to high clouds on Saturday and we’ll have to see how far the moisture pushes into Colorado. The next storm lines up Sunday night, ya baby!
