Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/16/2018

Another nice day is on tap for the Crested Butte area. We are currently sitting under a ridge of high pressure with a southwestern flow pushing warmer air into the area. Expect air temperatures to be a few degrees warmer today than yesterday pushing close to the freezing mark at 11,000 feet. Winds will be from the west and light. Tomorrow a trough will push high-level clouds into the area, but we will be well to the south of the accumulating snowfall. It will be possible that a few flakes fall on Monday from orographic lift in the mountains to the west and north of town, but no real accumulations are expected. The area will sit under a moist northwest flow for Tuesday and Wednesday with the best chance of accumulating snow coming on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
