Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/25/2019

The Crested Butte area will continue to sit under a zonal flow with the jet-stream and moisture well to our north. Today will be much like yesterday but with a few more high clouds. Expect temperatures to rise slightly as warmer air makes its way into the area. A strong inversion is currently set up with -14 at the Gunnison Airport and CBMR showing 14 at mid-mountain. A change in the weather is expected for Wednesday night and Thursday as a short wave and associated closed low will begin to impact the area and produce accumulating snowfall. This system looks to favor the central and northern mountains of Colorado with a WNW flow. We will be able to put some snow totals for this system tomorrow.
