Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/08/2019

While yesterday’s snowfall fell short of expectations, fear not as more snow is on the way. The Crested Butte area received 4-6” of new snow last night and a very convective and spring like storm is moving in today. Expect snow and wind to fluctuate throughout the day with heavy snow and graupel at times and even the possibility of some thunder. The heaviest snowfall could hold off until around sunset. Tonight temperatures will drop off and a Northwest flow will drive continued orographic snowfall over the Kebler Pass and Paradise Divide areas. A wobbley closed low comes into play next week which will push more snowfall into the area, but the exact track and snowfall is yet to be determined.
