Mountain Weather 3/12/2017

Date: 03/12/2017

Don’t worry spring breakers, Crested Butte beach weather is only temporarily on hold and will return on Monday. A fast moving short wave trough will impact northern Colorado today, bringing light snow accumulations. Here in the center mountains, we’ll just see increased clouds and elevated gusty winds with a very light snow shower at best. This shortwave begins to move on Monday night as the high-pressure ridge over the western US takes hold again. This ridge will bring dry weather with potently record breaking high temperatures into the midweek.
