CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/20/2020

The Crested Butte area will sit under a southwest flow today which will bring continued cloud cover and light snow showers to the area. Light snowfall will continue through early Saturday morning, but accumulations during this period look to produce only a couple of additional inches. Air temperatures remain below seasonal norms reaching into the mid-twenties. Winds have relaxed since yesterday’s blustery conditions.

Expect clouds and snow showers to linger through the weekend. The weather pattern looks to remain active over the next week, but snow totals look relatively modest. Early next week, around Monday night, looks to be the next significant storm impacting the area.
