Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Wednesday 1/29

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/29/2020

Maybe the recent Fat Bike World Party is sending the next storm south of us, or maybe the skiers are just not doing their part of the snow dance. Or maybe its the weather forecasters fault for saying the next storm is going south, dammit. Well, I’m not sure who’s fault it is.

A large low-pressure trough is dropping through Utah and heading down and south of Colorado. We still get moisture associated with this storm, just not much snow out of it. A couple of inches west of Crested Butte would be great! While a couple of inches for Crested Butte is wishful. Some light snow showers are about it. Winds will at least remain light today into Thursday. On Thursday afternoon we have another period of increased moisture and should again see some light snow showers.

Dry weather builds for the weekend and an increasing temperature trend.
