Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Tuesday 2/25

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/25/2020

A ridge of high-pressure is sitting to our west and a trough of low-pressure is off to our east. While Colorado is chilling right in the middle under cold northerly flow. Thankfully, the strongest upper-level winds look to also mostly stay to our west on Tuesday and that may help the wind forecast keep from getting too out of hand. 11,000ft winds will still hang in the 10 to 20mph range and we could see some stronger gusts moving through. We also have enough moisture overhead to keep some clouds in the forecast and the chance for some light snowfall at times.

The sky clears by Tuesday night and the overnight temperatures are going to plummet. Mostly clear sky rolls into Wednesday, while we may see a few more clouds in the afternoon as another blob of moisture tries to drop into our area.

By Friday we look to slide under a flatting high-pressure ridge that should keep the forecast area dry as we start the weekend.
