Crested Butte Daily Snow

February 19, 2019 6:55am MST

Update

Weather Pattern

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.

Tuesday

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.

Wednesday

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.

Thursday

More of the same. Some snow showers and some sunshine as the next storm approaches Colorado from the southwest.

Friday

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.

Saturday

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!
