We are in a favorable pattern with fresh snow reported each of the past 6 days!
As two storms track to the south of Colorado this week, it is not a favorable pattern for intense snow at Crested Butte, but we should still see light snow with a few chances for more intense snow.
We’re waking up to 3 inches of snow that fell on Monday night, so conditions should continue to be soft! For the day, expect light snow showers with perhaps some bursts of more intense snow.
We might have a few fresh inches in the morning and then the next storm will approach with any breaks of sunshine maybe turning to snow showers.
More of the same. Some snow showers and some sunshine as the next storm approaches Colorado from the southwest.
The southern storm will eventually move over and east of Colorado, once again turning winds to blow from a more favorable direction. This means that we have a good chance for steadier and/or more intense snowfall from some point on Friday into Friday night.
We could wake up to soft snow from Friday and Friday evening. The rest of the day could be dry and sunny.
Sunday and beyond
Chances for light snow should continue through the middle of next week (February 27) though I cannot offer any details at this point!
Thanks for reading and check back each morning for daily updates!
