Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/01/2019

Zonal westerly flow continues over the western US. Blobs of increased moisture are passing through and bringing snow showers each time. Taylor Park actually pulled off just about as much snow as Schofield Pass last night. Orographics will play a big part in where the snow stacks up the deepest, but we are seeing more widespread snowfall than I expected thanks to strong winds and the jet stream aloft. We’ll see a good pulse of snow today, with a break tonight, then the next big pulse looks to come in on Saturday. Light snow showers will linger into Monday with total storm accumulations for this whole time period looking to be in the 1 to 2 feet range. High-pressure ridge builds and brings drier weather for early next week.
