Mountain Weather For 11,000FT. Tuesday 2/18

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/18/2020

Another quick round of snowfall dropped 2 to 4 inches across the forecast area. Winds calmed a bit overnight but are back on the increase early this morning from the west. Snowfall continues to linger as of 5 AM but is forecasted to dissipate shortly after sunrise. Sky cover will be similar to yesterday with reasonable amounts of sun, but the highest terrain along the Ruby Range may continue to see a bit more cloud cover. Air temperatures will be cooler today than past days but will remain reasonable.

You can expect most of Tuesday and Wednesday to be dry with the next snow producer arriving on Wednesday evening. Wednesday’s system should offer a refresh to surface conditions but it does not look like a major storm. Friday and into Saturday will dry out again, but the active weather pattern will send another low-pressure system towards Colorado roughly late Saturday or Sunday. The timing and trajectory of this system are largely uncertain, but the weather pattern remains busy over the next week.
