Mountain Weather For 11,000FT. Friday 4/10.

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 04/10/2020

The low-pressure system approaching from the west continues to stumble its way well to the south of Colorado. Yesterday evening and last night, a weak chunk of moisture was pushed towards central Colorado which produced a few isolated showers and increased cloud cover. Overnight night temperatures dipped below freezing for most locations, but overall Thursday night was fairly warm with a few weather stations remaining at or above freezing. Expect cloud cover to quickly diminish this morning through the early afternoon before clouds build again in the PM offering the chance for isolated convective showers later in the day. Temperatures on Friday will reach near the highs of Thursday.

Saturday will start with clear skies before a sagging trough and cold front from the north reaches the Crested Butte area in the early afternoon. Snowfall will develop Saturday afternoon and linger through Sunday. Accumulations do not look impressive, but snowfall totals may provide a slight refresh to riding conditions. Air temperatures for Sunday through Tuesday will remain below average as the area sits under a northwest flow after trough passage.
