Mountain Weather 1/15/2017

Date: 01/15/2017

A generally quiet day of weather is on tap for the Crested Butte area today as the wandering cut-off low pressure system flirts with the Arizona/Mexico border, spinning one last ripple of moisture our direction. This moisture will bring cloud cover and an increased chance of light snow showers to our forecast area this afternoon and evening. Look for high temperatures at 11,000ft in the 32º range and light winds out of an unusual east-southeasterly direction at ridgetop. The week ahead looks dry and sunny, with our next chance of snow and another stormy period arriving Thursday through next weekend.
