Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Thursday January 23.

CB Avalanche CenterWeather

Date: 01/23/2020

We are sitting under northwest flow at the nose of a high-pressure ridge. Moisture has been pushing through and adding up some better than anticipated snow totals for the mountains north and west of Crested Butte. For Thursday, upper-level moisture has dried out and this should lead to some breaks in the clouds today. Though we may still see clouds hanging along the Ruby Range and Elk Mountains and continuing to produce periods of light snow at times. Cloud cover looks to decrease Thursday night into Friday. By Friday afternoon we have another blob of moisture moving in. This will again bring increased clouds and could produce some more light snow. A shortwave trough moves in for Sunday into Monday and that will be our next storm in the lineup.
