Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/21/2019

Last night produced just a trace of new snow across the forecast area, but the low-pressure system, that has been producing small amounts of snow the past few days, is now in Nevada and is continuing its slow march towards Colorado. This morning the satellite imagery shows a healthy stream of moisture flowing into Colorado from the SW. It is currently snowing in our area, and it looks like we will see generally light snow for today with accumulations of a couple of inches with increasing wind speeds during the day. The San Juans are going to take the brunt of the snowfall today. Thursday night and Friday ought to be the best chance for substantial accumulations for the Gunnison Country. Models currently are showing close to a foot of snow by the end of Friday for the higher elevations; keep your fingers crossed.
