Mountain Weather For 11,000ft Thursday, December 5th

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/05/2019

A small low-pressure system is currently spinning moisture into our area as it crosses the Utah border this morning. This system will give us some storm energy and lift as it passes through the area to turn the available moisture into snowfall. The best snowfall today will be during the AM hours too early afternoon. It looks like we should see storm totals hitting the 4” to 10” range depending on where you are located in our forecast area. There are a couple of dry slots spinning around the low-pressure and adding some uncertainty. As they could cause breaks in the snowfall or lower total snow accumulations. Don’t get dry slotted CB! Winds are increasing this morning with the start of the snow. Those winds will stay elevated at upper elevations this morning, but this otherwise isn’t a particularly windy storm.

High-pressure ridging and dryer weather comes in for Friday. Moisture will start building on Saturday and the next storm is still lined up for the end of the weekend. We’ll work on those details tomorrow.
