Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/11/2019

The low-pressure system spinning off the southern California coast is set to head inland today. The center of this system is projected to stay south of Colorado and produce favorable snowfall for southern Colorado and more modest totals for the Crested Butte area. Expect very light snowfall today and a little bit of an increase in intensity tonight after sunset with a couple of inches overnight. You can expect relatively uneventful Tuesday. Tuesday night through Thursday could be a bit more interesting as multiple factors may come together to produce substantial snowfall during that time. Tuesday night looks to have very warm air in place when the precipitation starts and could produce rain initially for elevations as high as 9,500′ before turning to snow.
