Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/21/2019

A strong low-pressure system is moving across the Great Basin this morning towards western Colorado. Winds will be strong on the front part of this system and will continue to blow as the trough axis passes by this afternoon and into tonight. This system has good energy and the potential for convection to create locally high precipitation rates where the convection sets up. We can expect 4 to 8 inches from this snowmaker by Tuesday morning. Expect snowfall to begin around noon and be prepared for very gusty winds during the day. Cold air will slide in on the back half of this system with air temperatures dropping for Tuesday.
