CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/07/2019

Strong temperature inversions will greet you out the door this morning with Crested Butte sitting at -4ºF at 5am, and higher elevations hovering in the mid to upper 20s. Winds will remain generally light from the west, but increasing ahead of tomorrow’s incoming storm throughout the day. The ridge of high pressure that has brought us two days of brilliant sunshine will slide east late tonight, with snow developing after midnight. At this time, accumulations look to range from 4-8” with areas west and north of Crested Butte looking at snow totals closer to 12”+ by sunset on Sunday.
