Weather Forecast for 11,000′

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 11/22/2018

Just in time for the holidays….here comes ol’ man winter! Thanksgiving day will bring a long-awaited change to our warm and dry fall in the Elk Mountains. Our first storm will be arriving today with the bulk of the moisture hitting tonight and into early Friday morning. The stream of the atmospheric energy will be to the south which will help to keep winds on the lighter side, especially in the valleys, while offering a favorable southwest flow to begin this stormy weekend. The second and stronger storm will arrive Friday night and will come more from the northwest but with more moisture. The accompanying cold front dropping out of the north will bring strong winds and cold temperatures and up to a foot of snow by Saturday morning. Things will settle down Saturday afternoon and into Sunday, but temperatures will remain cold into next week as it looks like winter is here to stay for a while.
