11/16: STAYING NORTH. Crested Butte Weather and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update-For Today- 11/16: This moisture from the north has all but dried up and high clouds and gusting winds are looking like about all we’ll see. The colder air and little bit of moisture stay to the north and a flake or two on the divide is not out of the question this afternoon but nothing measurable will find the lower valleys.
Temperatures: Overnight lows gained with the high clouds with Crested Butte reporting 14 and 16 for Gunnison. Highs will come in slightly cooler but still hit 49 for CB and 53 for Gunni. Lows tonight will look about the same.
Outlook: Sunshine in the dry northwestern flow remains the trend through Tuesday with a surge of milder air pushing highs up well above normal as a trough moves into the west. Tuesday night we see this move over our area and models are calling for snow and an unsettled pattern through the middle of the week. There are lots of details to work out and temperatures remain a question but these are positive changes.
