Mountain Weather For 11,000FT

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/02/2020

Today looks to be the last day of mild and pleasant weather before an approaching trough begins to impact the area on Monday. The thin, high clouds from the past two days look to diminish which will allow high temperatures to reach well above seasonal norms today. Winds are expected to remain reasonable, blowing 10 to 20 mph, as they swing to the southwest before the next weather maker arrives.

Clouds will increase quickly on Monday and snowfall should start during the first half of the day for the Crested Butte area. Snowfall totals do not look impressive but a cold front passage midday will help to squeeze out the snow. Air temperatures look to drop throughout the day tomorrow to levels well below seasonal norms.
