Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Thursday 1/2

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/02/2020

The low-pressure trough is now sitting over Eastern Colorado this morning. That’s putting us in northwest flow. Upper-level moisture starts fading away throughout the day, while low-level moisture hangs in there until Thursday Night. So generally light orographic snow showers are what we have in the snow forecast for today. That snow will primarily be west and north of Crested Butte. A brief ridge of high pressure builds in on Friday and into Saturday. Saturday is looking like a great day to get out under the sun, but we may see some clouds moving in that afternoon and a flake or two of snow if we are lucky. The next chance of a storm comes early next week.
