CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/19/2019

Yesterday afternoon and last night brought a couple inches of snow with light SW winds from a trough over the Great Basin. Today the trough will move eastward over Colorado and pass by this evening. Today we can expect continued light snowfall with accumulations around 3 to 5 inches across the forecast area. Winds are expected to remain light throughout the day. Wednesday there will be a short break in snowfall as the area will be between two troughs. Snowfall looks to pick back up on Wednesday evening as the next trough begins to impact the area. Winds are expected to be on the increase on Wednesday on the front end of the next system. It appears like we will see a steady trickle of snowfall Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. No individual day looks to offer dramatic accumulations but snow totals will add up to around a foot by the end of the work week on Friday.
