Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Tuesday 12/31

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 12/31/2019

It’s so cold out there that dogs are sticking to fire hydrants. Be careful out there folks. -20’s down in the valleys, oo fun. The sun will come out, and we’ll have another beautiful day. High clouds will start moving in this afternoon as we get ready for the start of the New Years Storm. We’ll be in NW flow on Wednesday and Thursday as a deep low-pressure trough builds over the western US. The snow looks to ramp up quickly, late on Wednesday afternoon. By Thursday morning we could be looking at 6 to 8” West and North of Crested Butte, and 3 to 5 in Crested Butte. Snowfall looks to continue on Thursday, mostly for the orographically favored areas again west and north of CB. Dry weather arrives to start the weekend.
