Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/20/2019

Valley inversions stubbornly held on overnight, and will persist until our next storm system temporarily scours cold air out of the greater Gunnison Basin. Temperatures this morning are in the mid 20s at ridgetop, and sub zero in valley bottoms. High temperatures will be mild today, with light winds aloft shifting from northwest to southwest and mid to high level cloudiness increasing today as another Pacific storm moves across the Great Basin. On Monday, winds will increase, and snow should be falling by midday. Accumulations look to be in the 4-8” range. Still 36hrs out, but worth throwing out a teaser. Stay tuned.
