Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Tuesday 4/14

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 04/14/2020

Colorado remains on the western edge of a large and cold trough which is in place over much of the US. Cold and dry NW flow will drive the weather today with breezy conditions and below-average temperatures once again. Drier air will allow for more sunshine with orographically driven clouds possible over the highest terrain. Highs have trended slightly cooler than forecast with cold air making a strong push into the area from the north. Clouds may begin to drift back in later in the day ahead of the next shortwave.

Tomorrow clouds will be on the increase throughout the day as the jet stream migrates back west and the next storm begins picking up Pacific moisture. Expect temperatures 10-15 degrees warmer than today as a moist and warm air-mass moves in. Significant precipitation is possible late Wednesday and through the day on Thursday with the arrival of this next trough.
