CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/19/2020

Here it comes….winters back baby! A moist and energetic storm started to impact the area very early this morning. Several inches of snow has already accumulated as of 5am and weather models are forecasting consistent snow through sunset and lighter showers until Friday morning. Wind directions have been from the east this morning but will transition to a more westerly direction as the storm moves eastward. Temperatures look to stay near or below the freezing mark today. Winds look modest with this system but strong enough to transport the new snow at upper elevations.

Snow showers are expected to linger on Friday and Saturday, but accumulations look relatively light but this may add a few additional inches into the weekend. Sunday and Monday are looking like drier days before another low-pressure system swings into the area. The storm for early next week looks much like that storms of the past few weeks by tracking towards the Four Corners region.
