6/2: HIGH CLOUDS EARLIER. Crested Butte Weather and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update-For Today- 6/2: We are continuing to see moisture and high clouds recirculating around the southwest. Moisture is dwindling but look for enough to fuel thickening cloud cover into the afternoon and scattered thundershowers up high that will eventually move into the lower valleys. These will be drier and more scattered but stay prepared.
Temperatures: The cloud cover kept us even warmer than we have been with Gunnison at 46 and 40 for Crested Butte. Highs will top out at 78 for Gunni and 72 for CB. Lows tonight stay warm.
Outlook: This cut off low spinning off Baja finally starts moving northeast in our direction and will flush the recycling moisture clear of the area. Remnants and general available moisture will continue to threaten afternoon thundershowers with the heat of the day but these will be more wind than actual rain through Thursday. By Friday we see a more concentrated shot of moisture lifting in from the southwest combining with increasing temperatures and models split but Friday and Saturday could be wetter.
