Weather Synopsis

A fresh surge for the race.

TV10 Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update- For Today- 8/19: We are seeing heavy cloud cover early and regional radar is showing concentrated moisture already lifting in from the southwest over Montrose and Grand Junction. This will move east through noon and cooler temperatures will help restrict the convective build up but it will be an active afternoon. Expect slower moving thundershowers but there will be a few stronger cells in the mix with gusting winds and small hail will remain a hit or miss possibility.

Temperatures: Overnight lows were mild with the clouds with Crested Butte holding to 44 and 52 for Gunnison. Highs will be cooler than yesterday with CB at 68 and 74 for Gunni. Look for lows tonight to stay on the warm side with nocturnal showers possible.

Outlook: The low pressure trough dropping down the CA coast has started an odd pattern for time of year. The results are looking to be about the same with scattered afternoon showers a consistent threat through most of the week but more from the west with cooler temperatures that will change the general attitude of the storms. We will dry into the weekend but models are still waffling on the progression.
