Crested Butte Local Forecast    [ CBTV-10 ]

Weather Synopsis

A squally mix.

TV10 Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update- For Today- 10/21: So far the northern system is staying north of our area but it is drawing a lot of moisture up from the south on a subtropical plume that almost looks like an encore from the monsoon. Ultimately we are lacking the dynamics to really kick the heavier moisture into action but look for a mix of rain and snow showers depending on elevation. Accumulations will be less than anticipated but expect squally surges under this pattern that will be worth being prepared for.

Temperatures: Lows warmed with the increased clouds with Crested Butte holding at 31 and 33 for Gunnison. Highs will reach 50 for CB and 56 for Gunni. Look for lows tonight about the same as last night or slightly lower.

Outlook: We will see snow on the higher elevations overnight and light snow down low will be possible but models are showing this all clearing the area sooner than expected so look for the sun breaking through by tomorrow afternoon. Expect a cold morning for Thursday but it also kicks off a string of sunny days that will take us into the weekend.
