CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/22/2019

Well, yesterday evening and last night didn’t go so well for us on the weather front. A convective storm that produced thundersnow in the San Juans yesterday, stayed to our west as it moved up through Colorado. We just caught the edge around sunset with increased winds and a dusting of snow.

Our forecast area gets another chance at snow today as another short wave moves up through Colorado. Snow showers look to pick up around mid-day for a few hours. By this afternoon winds will become more westerly and hopefully, we’ll see some oraghrapics kick off another couple inches of snow. The upper atmosphere looks to dry out for Saturday, while lower level moisture may stay trapped and keep cloudy sky in the area. Unsettled and cloudy weather remains for the weekend with clearing and dry weather moving in for the start of next week.
