Weather Synopsis

Big storm brewing.

TV10 Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update- For Today- 12/20: We are into our day of transition as the front end of this next pacific round starts to move into the west and the pattern starts migrating from the west to a more northwestern flow. We will see some very scattered snow showers but also some spotty sunshine with fairly mild highs but cooler gusting winds. Have layers and expect changes.

Temperatures: We hit our overnight lows before the clouds developed with Crested Butte reporting -2 at 1am while Gunnison dropped to 3 degrees. Highs will pop up to 28 for CB and 32 for Gunni but with some colder wind chill this afternoon. Lows tonight will be in the mid teens.

Outlook: We will see showers starting early Sunday morning but the real heavy snow will hold off until later in the day. Expect gusting winds and colder temperatures with the most efficient snow production for us in a window from Sunday night through Monday afternoon. We are on the southern end of this storm but should have a fresh 12 on the ground by Tuesday morning with much more up high. Do that snow dance but we have an active week ahead.
