Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/20/2019

The latest round of moisture produced just a couple inches around the forecast area; light orographic snow showers continue around the Ruby Range this morning. Yesterday’s trough has moved eastward with the next system looking to arrive late this evening. This next system looks to be very similar to the last; a low-pressure system is pushing down from the northwest and will slide towards the Four Corners region putting the area under a southwest flow. This system looks to produce snow from Wednesday night through Friday afternoon. Winds are already on the increase overnight and will likely stay elevated throughout the day. Expect significant drifting with ample soft snow for transport.
