Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/19/2019

Though moderated a bit by overnight cloud cover, cold overnight temperatures persist, with strong valley inversions settling into the Gunnison and East River valleys. This morning Crested Butte hovers around -10ºF while just uphill on Mount Crested Butte, its a balmy 20 above zero! Thats a 30 degree spread 1200 vertical feet. Look for another dry, classic sunny Colorado day. Light southwesterly winds bringing in warmer temperatures and todays highs at 11,000ft in the mid 20s. Looking ahead, the next snow producer continues to take shape in the central Pacific and potentially impacts our area for Christmas.
