Mountain Weather for 11,000ft Sunday, December 29th

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/29/2019

The snow producing system from the past few days has pushed eastward into the Great Plains, which has left the Crested Butte area under a very cold north flow. A tiny bit of residual moisture is leftover and may create a few flurries for the highest terrain to the north and west of Crested Butte but should dissipate by midday. The big story for the next few days will be the very cold temperatures. Daytime highs will struggle to reach double digits and, at many locations, may only reach just above 0. Temperatures will warm each day through Wednesday which is when the next significant storm should arrive. Models already are suggesting that the second half of this week will be snowy so hooray for that.

Temperatures will be cold enough to cause injury today so plan accordingly.
