7/13: LINGERING WEATHER EARLY. Crested Butte Weather and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update-For Today- 7/13: We are seeing remnants from nocturnal storms from the west moving along the divide this morning that could drop a little rain but the mostly dry trend holds. Look for a clearer window through the middle of the day but the returning moisture will fuel another round of afternoon build up. These will again be mostly dry but could produce a few wet areas so be prepared. We will likely see another light show as cells sift through again into tonight.
Temperatures: Lows were warm with the clouds at 45 for Crested Butte and 51 for Gunnison. Highs will reach 87 for Gunni and 81 for CB even with the clouds. Look for another warm night if the clouds linger again.
Outlook: Tuesday could look a lot like Monday but with a longer window of clear skies through the middle of the day. Afternoon thundershowers remain a threat and as the atmosphere gets more saturated and we may actually see rain hit the ground. The Stage 1 Fire Restrictions remain in effect and be vigilant with these mostly dry thunder cells.
