Weather Synopsis

More warm sunny hanging on.

TV10 Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update- For Today- 9/18: This dry slot is turning out to be more tenacious than expected with the stronger remnants of Odile stalling and wrapping back to the south and the pacific moisture just touching our area to the north. The result has been a general increase in precipitable water levels that has combined with the warmer than usual temperatures to produce the scattered afternoon thunder cells. This will continue today with another clear sunny start and just scattered but possibly strong cells through the afternoon so plan accordingly.

Temperatures: Overnight lows dropped lower than expected to 33 for Crested Butte and 37 for Gunnison. Look for highs to stay warm reaching 74 for CB and 79 for Gunni. Lows will look a lot like last night in the 30’s valley wide.

Outlook: As the organization breaks down in both the southern and northern moisture sources the result gets harder to predict. Expect a general increase in the afternoon thunder cells through Friday and Saturday with Sunday looking like the wettest day of the weekend carrying into Monday with temperatures cooling.
