Mountain Weather For 11,000FT. Sunday 2/16

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/16/2020

Snowfall began last night and will continue throughout the day for the Crested Butte area. Snow totals as of 5 AM range from about 1 to 4 inches. A healthy amount of Pacific moisture coupled with the jet-stream just north of the area will combine to produce modest snowfall. Strong westerly winds look to accompany this storm which will easily transport the new snow around to leeward features. Favorable wind direction from the west will also help squeeze out additional precipitation.

Temperatures for today will remain on the warmer side, but moving into tomorrow, slightly colder air will slide into the area. Modest snowfall will continue overnight on Sunday and into Monday although accumulations on Monday will be very light, producing just a few additional inches.
