CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/21/2018

The current low-pressure storm impacting the area remains interesting to watch in how it’s going to pan out, as confidence isn’t high on which way it’s going to go. The low pressure is moving right through central Colorado today. This makes the wind forecast a bit more difficult, and how much those wind directions are going to contribute local orographic lift. Will the right wind directions set up before the atmosphere starts drying out behind this low-pressure system? We will see. A cold front moving in with this system will help keep the precipitation intensity up this morning at least, and will keep the high temperature from creeping up much today. We’ll see clouds breaking up tonight and into tomorrow before a little blip in the weather Monday night with increasing clouds and maybe a flurry. By Tuesday we’ll be back in a high-pressure ridge taking us into the rest of the week.
