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.
