Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche CenterWeather

Date: 11/30/2018

A low-pressure system is currently moving across Utah and pulling moisture into Colorado on southwest flow. Snow began early this morning in the San Juan mountains and is a bit behind schedule in general. So the mountains around Crested Butte didn’t really pick up any new snow overnight as forecasted. The Kebler Pass area should see snow this morning, while our greater forecast area may have to wait until midday or early afternoon to see that snow develop. As the low-pressure trough passes to our south today, winds will become west to northwest this afternoon. That’s when snow showers should intensify. Light snow will continue for a good bit of Saturday. We are in a cooling trend heading into the weekend, with the cold area really settling in by Sunday.
