Mountain Weather For 11,000ft. Tuesday 12/17

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/17/2019

Cold and dry. Here we go, that’s the forecast. A high-pressure ridge is working its way over the intermountain west. Clearing sky overnight has allowed low temperatures this morning to drop down to the -20 range in the valleys and the negative single digits in the mountains. A clear sky will at least help fight the cold today, with the warmth of the sun, and high temperatures in the mountains will work into the teens. We’ll see another frigid night on Tuesday, then a better rebound in temperatures on Wednesday. Wednesday looks like a lovely day in the mountains with clear sky and light winds. We’ll have some clouds returning on Thursday as a disturbance passes to our south, then back to high pressure towards the weekend.
