Mountain Weather For 11,000ft. Wednesday 12/18

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/18/2019

Strong inversions set up again under a clear overnight sky. Valley temps dropped near -20, while 11,000ft temperatures have been on a steady increase overnight and currently in the positive teens this morning. We are transitioning into southwest flow under a high-pressure ridge. Warmer air is already starting to push in, and this will help those mountain temperatures warm to near 30 degrees today. Valley temperatures may struggle to climb in the same fashion if the inversions stay put.

Clouds will start increasing later today and keep increased clouds in the forecast throughout Thursday as small low-pressure moves through. Unfortunately, there isn’t any precipitation associated with this system. A high-pressure ridge is back for Friday and dry weather continues into the weekend.
