Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/03/2019

Heavy, wet snow and strong southwest winds will develop and expand early this morning and bring solid precipitation rates throughout the day. A reinforcing wave embedded in the storm system may spike snowfall rates, drop visibilities, and potentially produce thundersnow midday. Even though models have backed off precipitation slightly from yesterday, they continue to paint accumulations across our area mountains as a quick 1-1.5” of snow water equivalent by this evening, translating to 8-14” snow in snow favored areas like Kebler and Schofield Passes, with closer to 4-8” elsewhere. We get a quick reprieve Monday before yet another, colder system with its origins in Gulf of Alaska on Tuesday and beyond.
