Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Friday 1/31

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/31/2020

A trace to 3” of snow accumulated yesterday afternoon into the early evening. While NW to NE wind-gusts jumped up as an upper-level jet is passing overhead. Those winds are looking to remain elevated today, with gusts into the 40-50mph range at upper elevations. There is a bit of moisture that will be dropping in on the northerly flow later today and we may see some increasing cloud cover during that time. By Saturday we will have made the transition and landed under the high-pressure ridge. Winds will see a big drop, the sky will be clear and we’ll be on an increasing temperature trend into Sunday with above-average temperatures. The weekend is going to be a nice one!

The next storm comes in the form of a large low-pressure trough making its way across the 4 Corners on Monday. That will land us in SW flow. We’ll have to wait another day to get some more details on that.
