Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/05/2019

We will have another clear and cold start to the morning with the valleys once again diving below zero. Above the valley inversions, temperatures will again rise into the upper 30s, before high clouds begin to stream into Colorado early afternoon ahead of Sunday’s snow, and put a lid on the warm-up. Southwest winds will gradually increase throughout the day. Tonight through Monday looks like a solid snowmaker for the Elk Mountains with strong upper-level support that shifts from southwest to west orographics (wind direction) throughout the storm and could result in accumulations over 12” in the favored Kebler Pass and West Elks, as well as areas east of Crested Butte.
