CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/28/2020

Yesterday’s little system has moved to the east and snowfall largely ended yesterday evening for the Crested Butte area. Snowfall totals look to max out at 4 inches to the west of Crested Butte. Winds remained elevated overnight blowing from the northwest at 20 to 30 mph with gusts pushing 50. For today, skies will be mostly clear and winds are forecasted to relax a bit throughout the day. By this evening cloud cover will begin to build again before the next approaching system.

On Tuesday night the area is expected to pick up just a couple of inches as the next storm passes by on its way well south of our area. Snow will linger into Wednesday with the possibility of a couple more inches during the day. The area will pick up snow as the storm initially moves by but as it gets further south, the snow production will get shut off. The storm track for this event is not generally favorable for our area but will offer a modest refresh to surface conditions.
