Date: 03/13/2020

The low-pressure system milling around the southern California coast has made its way eastward bringing warm and moist air to Colorado. Precipitation has reached the San Juans early this morning and will slide northward across the state. Snowflakes will start falling around sunrise today. Much of the precipitation will fall on Friday and Friday night, but light snow will linger through Saturday for the Crested Butte area. This warm system may bring the chance for rain at the lowest elevations.

Sunday through the middle of next week may bring mildly unsettled weather to Crested Butte, but no significant accumulations are expected during this period. Air temperatures will be very warm as the area sits under a southwest flow. The next chance at substantial snow accumulations will come towards the end of the workweek.
