CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/20/2016

A nice inversion has set up overnight with valley low temperature in Crested Butte at -15 while low temperature at 11,000 feet are much warmer around 20 degrees. We’ll see these valley temps rebound today and the 11,000 temperature rise slightly into the high 20’s. There is nothing to exciting going on in our weather forecast during the work week. We’ll see some building clouds tomorrow morning as a week trough brings the chance for a couple inches of snow to northern Colorado. Then we should see clearing skys Thursday into Friday before Santa Claus brings the next winter storm. We have few details and currently lots of variability with this weekend’s storm so we’ll have to wait for models to come into better agreement to talk those details.
