Mountain Weather For 11,000FT. Sunday 2/23.

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/23/2020

The advertised closed low-pressure system has pushed a plume of moisture into the area and produced around 1 to 4 inches of new snow as of 4:20 AM. The low is still centered well to our west and will head eastward today. Expect moderate snowfall to continue during daylight hours today, comfortable air temperatures in the mid to upper twenties, and moderate wind speeds. Around mid-day, the flow will shift from southwest to the northwest as the low moves eastward. This system will offer a nice refresh to conditions and cover up the recently formed crusts on the south half of the compass. Wind speeds will remain modest but will have just enough gusto to transport the new snow at upper elevations. Closed low-pressure systems are often difficult to predict; this storm as of 5AM is already overproducing so prepared for the possibility of more snow than expected.

On Monday another system will bring snowfall to the area under northwest flow. Accumulating snowfall will linger from Monday through much of the daylight hours on Tuesday. Areas that are favorable for northwest flow events might do fairly well with this two day period of snowfall. We will keep you up to speed as this system gets closer.
