Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Wednesday 2/26

CB Avalanche CenterWeather

Date: 02/26/2020

Overnight low temperatures are around the negative teens in the valleys and negative single digits in the mountains. For both Wednesday and Thursday, we’ll continue sitting under cold north to northwest flow. 11,000ft temperatures should rebound to near 20 degrees and the sun will sure help fight the cold. Unfortunately, the pressure gradient aloft doesn’t fully relax so we’ll still have that bitter cold northerly winds at upper elevations.

For the cloud forecast, Wednesday is starting out nice and clear. By the afternoon there is moisture pushing into northern Colorado and we can expect increasing clouds in the afternoon. A similar trend looks to be in the forecast for Thursday.

A high-pressure ridge moves in on Friday and we’ll see dry weather and rising temperatures. The next Pacific storm will be brewing off the cost over the weekend and we’ll moisture pushing in by Sunday and a return to snow in the forecast.
