Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/31/2019

The pattern from yesterday continues to persist with a ridge to our west and a cold trough to our east. This leaves Crested Butte in a WNW flow with cold valley bottoms and moderate temperatures at mountain locations. Expect the possibility of gusty ridge top winds today with high-level clouds working into the area this afternoon. Clouds will be on the increase for Friday as the ridge to the west is slowly displaced eastward. This will bring a change in wind direction with the prevailing direction from the SW and warmer temperatures.
