Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/02/2019

The axis of the high-pressure ridge slid to the east late last night, Crested Butte finds itself on the warmer side under WSW flow. Temperatures are 15 or so degrees warmer early this morning as compared to yesterday. A low-pressure system is on the California coast and headed inland, but this system will ride the ridge of high-pressure up and over most of Colorado. The Crested Butte area will receive some clouds and maybe a trace of new snow tonight into Tuesday. In short, the next three days look to have mild temperatures with some clouds as we are on the bottom edge of this system. Wednesday night into Thursday looks to be the next best chance at snowfall. It is too early to think much about this storm towards the second half of the week, but the good news is that we should be back in the snow soon enough.
