Mountain Weather for 11,000ft February 12th, 2018

CB Avalanche CenterWeather

Date: 02/12/2018

Yesterday’s beautiful weather was short lived as our next winter storm is knocking at the door this morning. Crested Beauticians are eager to open that door and welcome some more snow to the area. A closed low is forming to our west and drawing moisture into the area on southwest flow. Models predict snowfall starting up around 6am, with southwest winds picking up this morning too. In the mountains west and north of Crested Butte, snowfall rates look to be an inch an hour for several hours before noon. Then snowfall rates look to taper in the afternoon and continue through the night. Drier weather will return for Tuesday before the next pulse of moister looks to bring snow back for the midweek.
