CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/12/2015

A broad trough is streaming Pacific moisture into Colorado this morning. The main dynamic forcing element for this system is afternoon convection, similar to summer thunderstorms, so snow showers will arrive this afternoon and intensify tonight. Passing cells could drop a quick 1″-3″ or so in some areas, and completely miss others. Trailing shortwave energy will keep weather unsettled into Saturday, before mild and dry weather takes hold by Sunday.
