Mountain Weather For 11,000FT. Saturday 4/4.

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 04/04/2020

For today, the Crested Butte area sits under a southwest flow. A small piece of moisture is working its way into the forecast area this morning, but accumulations as of 5 AM look to only be a trace for the highest terrain. Southwest flow will bring a return to more spring-like air temperatures with highs reaching close to 10 degrees warmer than yesterday. Skies are expected to be mostly cloudy, but sporadic periods of sunshine will help to warm surface temperatures. Snowfall will remain showery and light with accumulations of just an inch or two for the highest terrain on Saturday.

Conditions will largely remain dry from Sunday through about Wednesday. Expect warmer, seasonal, temperatures with somewhat gusty southwest winds. The next significant change in weather will occur around mid-week as a low-pressure system makes its way towards the Four Corners region. The end of the workweek will bring the next best chance for accumulating snowfall.
