Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Saturday 3/28

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/28/2020

This morning we are sitting under northwest flow behind the last storm that has headed east. The change to west then northwest flow overnight has produced some good snow numbers out Kebler Pass. As of 5am 6” looks to have accumulated overnight with storm totals there now reaching 11”. Only a couple inches of snow apparel to have accumulated near Crested Butte.

Low-level moisture will keep some lingering snow showers going this morning. Mainly to the west and north of Crested Butte. Otherwise, we are in a drying trend as we move under some brief ridging.

Sunday starts off dry, then we’ll see increasing high-level clouds through the day creating mostly cloudy sky as the next low-pressure trough begins pushing moisture in on southwest flow. Snow showers start-up in the late afternoon or evening. By Monday morning we are looking at 2 to 4” of snow, then we should double that by the evening.
