Weather Synopsis

Time for the snow dance.

TV10 Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update- For Today- 11/22: We are continuing to see this storm developing with moisture starting to drop in from the northwest but we will see milder temperatures and sunshine to start the day. Look for cloud cover to lower and thicken with snow showers turning to snow by this afternoon. The milder air ahead of the approaching cold front won’t spur much snow production so look for late tonight to be our best chance with 4-6 on the resort by the morning.

Temperatures: Lows were colder than we thought dropping to -1 for Crested Butte and 2 for Gunnison. Look for highs to pop early to 30 for CB and 35 for Gunni but expect colder windchills by the afternoon. Lows tonight will drop to the teens with snow likely into tomorrow.

Outlook: The heavier moisture and cold air will drop in tonight with heavy snow into tomorrow morning. Expect a lull and then squally surges with very high wind gusts producing periods of heavy snowfall but we will see breaks. Our dynamics are lining up but we need a bit of a southern push to get what we are hoping for so do that snow dance people.
