CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/28/2018

A moisture-starved closed low-pressure system is tracking through southern Arizona right now. Given the placement of this spinning top of a system and the lack of moisture, any hopes for significant snows today can now be erased. We’ll see clouds all day, a chance for a few snowflakes in the AM, and a steady shot of westerly wind after lunch. That’s it for this “storm.”
Tomorrow temperatures rebound to near freezing and we’ll get covered by a band of high clouds reaching out in front of a large Alaskan low dropping down into the western US. We expect this system to bring some snow to Crested Butte on Sunday.
