3/11: Colder Cold.
Crested Butte Weather and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update- Today- 3/11: We are into the cold clear pocket of high pressure that has filled in on the heels of this last wave. Overnight lows show the valley split but everyone’s starting below 0 so look for a slower warm up to a sunny but chilly day. Have layers and watch exposed skin.
Temperatures: Overnight lows plummeted hitting -25 for Crested Butte but holding to just -5 for Gunnison. Highs will top out in the high 20s if we avoid inversions but it will be a slow climb. Lows tonight will be a little warmer but still in negative territory.
Outlook: Models have us seeing a big temperature bump Saturday as the pattern turns to the west but this will require some good mixing to clear the cold from the valleys. The higher March sun angle should help but I’m going to pull up a little short of guidance and say high 20s or 30 climbing slowly through the weekend. Have layers for early starts and keep watching Sunday night for our one variable.
