Mountain Weather March 1, 2018

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/01/2018

The western US sits under a broad ridge of high pressure at the moment. A large trough is stalled on the Oregon Coast, spinning light moisture, observable as high thin clouds, towards us today. Then tomorrow that moisture tap dries up we’ll see our first truly spring-like day of March.
That trough will remain parked on the coast through Saturday, pounding the Sierra with snow, before ejecting eastward across the continent to bring us a quick shot of snow on Sunday followed by cooler dry air early next week.
