CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/15/2018

An active week of weather started last night with a dribble, of rain that is. Freezing levels sat well over 10,000′.
A large closed low off the Pacific coast will sling moisture towards Colorado several times over the next week, with the first wave arriving this afternoon escorted in by a potent cold front. That means we can expect a good burst of snow and dropping temperatures beginning mid-afternoon, with snowfall ending by tomorrow morning.
Friday through Saturday morning, we’ll see a brief window of high pressure before our next storm lines up for Saturday night into Sunday.
