Mountain Weather 1/2/2016

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/02/2016

-25*F in Crested Butte this morning feels downright balmy compared to yesterday morning, and strong inversions are in place with most mountain temperatures hovering in the teens. A closed low to our west will direct enough moisture into our region for some mid to upper level clouds this weekend. As that low migrates north, it open the doors to warm, southwest flow, warming mountain temperatures into the upper 20’s or low 30’s by Sunday. A series of Pacific troughs bring back unsettled weather next week, although the brunt of precipitation stays to our south with these storms.
