Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/27/2019

A digging trough of low pressure, tracking near Las Vegas this morning, will move into the Four Corners area during the day, favoring the San Juan Mountains to our south, but the Crested Butte area should still look to squeak out some accumulations, especially after midnight tonight when the flow swaps from southerly winds to cold, northwest flow. Winds do not look too miserable, even at ridge top with this storm. Once this initial trough passes, the Elk Mountains may exceed forecast snowfall models as we will sit in cold, northwest flow for the next several days with snowfall in the Kebler and Schofield Pass areas potentially landing in the 15-20″ range for total snow accumulations by Saturday evening. Looking ahead, Western Colorado will feel frigid once again this weekend, slowly moderating each day next week.
