Crested Butte Weather and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update-For Today- 3/21: This ridge has migrated through to the east but is still capping the southern flow of moisture as this first wave rolls into western CO. We need more of a western kicker to get the flow over our area so look for a slow start to the snow today. Temperatures remain a challenge and snow will come is squally surges into the afternoon with some banding that could produce 2-5 into early Friday. Expect wet slushy roads and plan accordingly.
Temperatures: Overnight lows held to 8 degrees valley wide this morning with the high clouds. Highs will climb to the low 30’s but expect some cooler wind chills. Lows tonight will be right around 20 with clouds and snow expected into Friday morning.
Outlook: We are looking at a series of weaker waves stacking in the west that will feed into the area with snow in varied degrees through early Monday. Dynamics will be mixed with the milder southwester flow set to meet slightly colder air which will produce stronger hit or miss bands but really only enough to produce a couple inches a day. Expect changes and stay tuned for updates.
