CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/30/2018

Is it March or is it just me? Today’s going to be warmer than yesterday as we sit on the south side of the jet stream under a dry warm westerly flow. We’ll see a few high clouds stream by as a sign of the wind and isolated snow showers to our north, but otherwise, it will feel like a typical spring day. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for two small systems at the end of this week to knock us back into winter by the weekend.
