Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

Date: 02/13/2019

Overnight cloud cover kept low temperatures much warmer than the past few nights. Starting this afternoon will begin a 3 day period of warm and wet weather for the Crested Butte area lasting through about Saturday evening. The moisture looks to come at three intervals with the potential for light snow during the in-between periods. The heaviest hits of snow will come Wednesday night, Thursday night, and Saturday. Flow directions look most favorable for the Thursday night event which is great because it will be packing the most moisture of the three snowy periods. Things are about to get exciting because a good amount of uncertainty remains about snow totals, but the moisture is impressive and flow directions are looking very favorable for the Crested Butte area.
