Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche CenterWeather

Date: 02/28/2019

Counting flakes on the webcams this morning! The problem is, that the same flakes look to be making a couple of rounds past the webcam before they hit the ground. So, we’ll just have to wait a little longer for the Pow to come back. The lower 48 is under westerly flow. Blobs of increased moisture continue to pass by in the near forecast with some chances of snow, but nothing really exciting. There isn’t much for storm energy on Thursday or Friday so the snow that falls will largely be driven by orographics. The moisture tap starts increasing Friday afternoon and into Sunday for what looks like some game on pow. The pressure gradients across the western US starts to sag and bring in more storm energy helping increase snowfall rates for the main event Friday night into Saturday.
