2/25: CLEARING BUT A VALLEY MIXED. Crested Butte Weather and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update-For Today- 2/25: We are seeing some remnant moisture wrapping back into the area from the northeast that will keep snow showers going on the divide and higher terrain at the north end of the valley through the morning but any organized moisture is past us. Cams show clear skies to the south and west and cold clear conditions will build in as skies clear valley wide into the afternoon. Expect some gusting winds to produce colder wind chills and keep the layers handy.
Temperatures: Overnight lows dropped to 0 for Gunnison and -3 for Crested Butte. Highs will stay cold topping out in the high teens as this colder air hangs on. Lows tonight will plummet as skies clear with all elevations in the negative 20s.
Outlook: We trade super cold temperatures through Wednesday morning for a sunny day and milder air mass as a pocket of high pressure moves in. The pattern pivots slowly to the west through the end of the week with temperatures warming steadily into the weekend. Enjoy a string of beautiful days and make some plans.
