Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/19/2019

Last night the area picked up a skiff to an inch of new snow. The weak short-wave that brought yesterdays cloud cover and the dusting of snowfall last night continues eastward. For today, there could be a few lingering snow showers during the day much like what we experienced yesterday afternoon, but expect cloud cover to be on the decrease by this evening. Cloud cover may linger a bit longer over the highest terrain especially east of Crested Butte toward the continental divide. Temperatures will be just a bit cooler than they were the past few days, but nothing dramatic. Looking ahead, the low-pressure system in the Pacific will start to head inland late today with the moisture starting to hit the CB area on Thursday evening. After the reasonable weather today and Wednesday, it appears as though we are in store for another prolonged stormy period through the beginning of April…wahooo!
