Mountain Weather December 18th, 2017

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/18/2017

Gunnison Valley low temperatures are in the single digits while 11,000ft low temperatures are in the high teens. Temperatures will rebound into the 30’s today with clear skies and light winds. So it should be a beautiful day. This nice weather will hold for the start of the week before changes arrive on Wednesday. A low-pressure trough will start diving from the Northwestern United States towards Colorado. We’ll see increasing clouds on Wednesday and snow showers developing early on Thursday. 3” to 6” of snow on Thursday looks like a good bet and a welcome change. Temperatures will plummet for the weekend and we should also see some more snow accumulate.
