Weather Synopsis

Natural fireworks threatening.

TV10 Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update- For Today- 7/4: Happy 4th of July! As this pattern has continued to develop we are finding ourselves right on the edge of where the drier northern air is meeting the wetter conditions from the south. The resulting dynamics are kicking up strong thunder cells like we saw yesterday and it looks like we could see more of the same today. These are scattered and hit or miss but also have the potential for wetting rains and hail. Unfortunately these will be a reality through the afternoon and you will want to be prepared for fast moving but potentially strong storms.

Temperatures: Lows looked a lot like yesterday with Crested Butte reporting 44 and 52 for Gunnison. Highs will climb early to 75 for CB and 78 for Gunni but will likely cool by the afternoon. Look for lows again tonight about the same.

Outlook: The dueling weather fronts take a turn into Sunday morning with the pattern turning to the south ushering in a surge of moisture that will fuel some heavier rain potential. Sunday is looking like it will be the wettest day of the extended forecast with thundershowers building by noon and likely continuing to threaten throughout the day.

***Cottonwood Pass is back OPEN***
The road to Cottonwood Lake and that campground remains closed due to conditions but Cottonwood Pass is open.
