Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Sunday January 19th

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/19/2020

Valley inversions are set up this morning with low temperatures in CB and Gunnison below zero while mountain low temperatures are in the low teens. A high-pressure ridge continues to build over the area. High clouds are currently moving over Utah and will move through our area today. Otherwise, we have dry air aloft and should otherwise see a mostly clear sky day. Winds look to be light, with high temperatures in the mountains near or just above yesterdays.

Moisture moves back in on Monday afternoon with increasing clouds. By Tuesday that moisture looks thick and will start producing snowflakes. There isn’t much of a storm associated with this moisture, so we’ll largely rely on orographics for snowfall. A low-pressure trough moves in for the midweek and will bring a better chance of accumulating snowfall.
