MOUNTAIN WEATHER FOR 11,000FT. THURSDAY 2/27

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/27/2020

A weak shortwave trough located just east of the divide moved through overnight bringing a slightly warmer air mass, high clouds and very light snowfall to the highest elevations. As this trough quickly departs the region today, expect drier air to filter in with NW flow remaining in place. Light to moderate winds with occasional stronger gusts will be seen as the jet stream remains overhead.

Tonight will be clear, cold and calm as the ridge continues to push east ahead of our next weather maker. On Friday flow will begin to transition towards the SW as a large trough of low pressure makes it way onto the west coast. This system looks to cut off from the main flow and track southward across our area through the weekend which will increase our chances of measurable snowfall.
