Mountain Weather for 11,000ft Tuesday 1/7

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/07/2020

A weak ridge will build over Colorado today bringing inversions to valley bottoms and mostly clear skies. Temperatures in valleys will struggle a bit with the inversion but temps at mountain locations are looking very pleasant near 30 degrees. On Wednesday afternoon a weak trough will pass by the northern part of Colorado, unfortunately, this system will not produce much if any accumulating snowfall for the Crested Butte area. Then on Thursday evening into Friday, a stronger, wetter system will impact much of Colorado. It is too early to start throwing snowfall numbers around, but at the very least it looks like we will get a refresh on snow surfaces out of this system.
