Mountain Weather For 11,000FT. Wednesday 2/19

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 02/19/2020

Today will bring increased cloud cover to the area as a very weak disturbance passes over southern Colorado. There is a chance for a couple of snowflakes to get squeezed out around Crested Butte in the afternoon but no accumulations are expected. A cooler air mass is working into the area dropping temperatures a few degrees from yesterday. Cloud cover will dissipate Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Mostly clear skies and warming temperatures will greet us for Thursday and Friday. A low-pressure system is expected to stumble towards the Four-Corners region on Saturday afternoonish and will bring with it the next chance at accumulating snowfall. Storm systems that track through the Four Corners region are generally no big snowfall producers for Crested Butte. We will keep an eye on the trajectory of this storm and keep you up to speed over the next couple of days.
