Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 03/20/2019

For today, expect seasonally warm temperatures with ample amounts of sunshine during the first half of the day. The low-pressure system on the west coast is starting to push cloud cover towards the Four Corners area already this morning, and by this afternoon expect clouds to begin building around the Crested Butte area. The first snowflakes from the incoming low-pressure system could arrive as early as Thursday afternoon, but the accumulating snowfall is not forecasted to hit until Thursday night and continuing into Friday morning. Temperatures look to be on the warm side with a strong southerly flow so there could be a little bit of rain for the valley bottoms Thursday evening. Light snowfall should keep falling through Friday and Friday night, but accumulations will be modest at best. This system doesn’t appear to be a heavy hitter but should provide a decent little refresh.
