Weather Synopsis

Changes moving in.

TV10 Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update: 4/11/14 For Today: We will see a final day under this high pressure ridge with sunny skies  to start but high clouds will spread into the area from the southwest through to the north. Expect gusting winds as the pattern starts to shift but temperatures will be warm through the afternoon with little effect from any developing cloud cover.

Temperatures: Overnight lows stayed on the milder side with Crested Butte reporting 19 degrees and 23 for Gunnison. Highs will climb early back to 50 for CB and 62 for Gunnison. Look for lows tonight back in the mid 20’s range.

Outlook: This next round of western moisture will come in first as a drier southwestern system and then as an upslope northern flow. This combination usually results in a toss up as far as how much snow we may see. Expect Gusting winds through Saturday mixing with cloud cover and some showers but the heavier potential will come through Sunday with 2-4 possible before we clear again Monday. Expect changes through the weekend.
