Mountain Weather For 11,000ft Sunday 12/15

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/15/2019

Winds have eased and become light overnight, while snowfall also tapered off after midnight. The moisture stream has now moved to our south. A short wave trough will be passing over Colorado today. Models show us staying just to the north of that main moisture feed, so if that holds up we are only talking about a little new snow this afternoon. If that model guidance is wrong and the moisture pushes a bit further north then we could see more snow adding up this afternoon and into the evening.

Heading into Monday the Temperatures will be dropping as we sit under northerly flow. The mountains will see high temperatures in the single digits and low temperatures in the negatives. By Tuesday a large high pressure will be overhead bringing clears sky and continued cold temperatures.
