A cold system is moving down from the northern Rockies today with an associated jet stream. Light snowfall will accumulate from today through tonight and possibly drips into Tuesday but totals are looking fairly lean. Snowfall will be focused on the highest terrain to the west and north of Crested Butte. Moderate to strong northwest winds will continue to blow through Tuesday moving the new snow around. Temperatures will be significantly colder than the past few days with highs in the teens and lows reaching below zero at night.

An additional weak system is forecasted to move through the area on Wednesday night into Thursday followed by a building ridge at the end of the week. Temperatures should rebound with warmer air moving in from the southwest for the end of the workweek and weekend.
