CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/18/2018

Today is our last day of high pressure before the ridge axis shifts east and we fall under the influence of an approaching trough of low pressure for the weekend. This approaching trough is currently just off the Pacific Coast, and as it comes onshore tomorrow, we can expect strong southwest pre-frontal winds and an increase in clouds Friday night. Saturday afternoon into the evening looks like it will be our best window of precipitation during this storm, though snow showers should linger into Sunday.
