Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/23/2019

Clouds and mild air will continue to push into the area today in front of a trough centered off the coast of California. This next system will slowly slide eastward towards Colorado today and tomorrow. Cloud cover should thicken and temperatures will likely rise by a few degrees compared to yesterday.
The next system is expected to arrive on Tuesday evening putting Crested Butte under southwest flow. The San Juans, Grand Mesa, and West Elks look to do best with this storm, but Crested Butte will get in on the action as well, but will limited snowfall totals. The best chance of accumulating snowfall will be late Tuesday evening through Christmas morning and taper off after that. Snow totals are not looking impressive but should give our area a little refresh. Look for more detailed snowfall numbers tomorrow.
A closed low-pressure is scheduled to arrive sometime around Thursday but the exact track and timing of this weather producer remain a bit uncertain. The good news is that the pattern looks to remain through the end of the week.
