Yesterday’s storm cleared out overnight with snow tapering off around 11pm in the Crested Butte area. Farther north toward Aspen, snow continued and they received 6” additional last night alone (storm there added to 22″ total). With clearing skies, temperatures have plummeted below zero in valley locations. Look for clear skies, light winds, and strong solar radiation to spike temperatures by mid morning today,. Ridging high pressure takes over for the weekend with gradually rising temperatures each day. On Sunday, clouds and southwest winds increase, and our next storm system drops from the north for Monday.
