Mountain Weather for 11,000ft February 19th, 2018

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/19/2018

Hold on to small children, because it is windy out there folks! At 11,000ft are in the 25 to 35mph range with gusts in the 60’s. These winds will continue to stay elevated today. The incoming storm is already behind schedule and deflating my powder hungry dreams a bit. There is currently a lot of dry air pushing into Colorado with only a narrow stream of moisture. A low-pressure trough will continue to drop southeast today and develop snow showers. We should still see some decent accumulation during the day with the best snow showers late this afternoon or after dark when a cold front finally drops south. Behind the cold front temperatures will plummet. Tuesday will be very cold with some light snow showers.

The week ahead looks unsettled, with some clouds and cool temps, but not much for snow. A better storm looks to arrive around the end of the work week.
