Cows are cruising through Hartmans for the next 3 weeks. The gate at the top of Jack's and the two gates on Josho's need to remain closed. The gate on Graceland and the road gate in the middle of Enchanted Forest also need to remain closed until the desert bovine move east.

6/19: HEADED INTO THE DRY SLOT. Crested Butte Weather and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update-For Today- 6/19: Drier air is rapidly moving in early and will scour the low clouds still hanging on through the morning. We will enter a dry slot that should restrict any convective build up but stay prepared if you are headed up high. We will see a bump in temperatures with sunny skies but keep the layers handy.
Temperatures: Overnight lows dropped to 45 for Gunnison and 34 for Crested Butte. Highs will climb with the sun but still hold at 62 for CB and 69 for Gunni. Lows tonight will be about the same or cooler.
Outlook: Sunny skies and mild temperatures will hang on through Thursday but we are seeing a trough digging south out of Canada that is threatening weather and unseasonably cold temperatures for the weekend. Expect scattered thundershowers starting early Friday with a mix into Saturday and colder air Saturday night that could mean snow up high if the right/wrong pieces fall into place. This is a work in progress but worth considering as you make plans so stay tuned.
