Hold onto your hats. An impressive series of storms will arrive this afternoon from the Southwest, and impact the Crested Butte area through potentially next Wednesday. Yes, Wednesday. Although, we will not see the brunt of the storm (Wolf Creek may see up to 8″ liquid water), we should not feel too starved as 1-2 feet look reasonable. Clouds and snow showers will increase in coverage this afternoon, with stronger waves of moisture overnight and through the weekend. Winds should remain elevated, and temperatures look to remain at or below average through this time frame.
