A white Christmas is in store for Crested Butte! Today, winds and clouds increase ahead of a low-pressure trough that is currently deepening over the California coast. Good dynamics on the front end of the trough will spark relatively warm snowfall beginning around sunset today. A clatter will arise late tonight, but you’ll have decide for yourself whether that is the cold front and associated powerful winds slamming into your house or something else… Snowfall continues through Christmas Day, with cold air filling in behind the front. We should see 6-8″ in town and twice that in the favored western parts of the zone by Sunday evening.
