Weather Synopsis

An early taste but get settled by the afternoon.

TV10 Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update- For Today- 12/21: So the good news is that this snow we are seeing early isn’t even part of the stronger wave currently dropping south through Utah so anything this morning will be a bonus with the real moisture set to move in this afternoon. We are still in the weaker western flow but the real cold and moisture will come in surges through the afternoon with our best chance at heavy accumulations through tonight producing about 8 inches on the resort and much more around Irwin. Expect wind to limit visibility and increase snow rates through the afternoon.

Temperatures: Lows stayed pretty even with the clouds and snow with Crested Butte reporting 14 degrees and 17 for Gunnison. Highs will hit 24 for CB and 29 for Gunni but with colder wind chills this afternoon. Lows tonight will be in the teens again with heavy snow.

Outlook: The heaviest snow production will continue into Monday and it looks like we saw the southern kicker we needed to get us into the best potential but we are still on the southern end. Expect realistic storm totals around 12 inches on the resort before skies clear Tuesday but these heavy bands could really produce so do that snow dance and think snow.
