2/21: A warm start.
TV10 Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update- For 2/21: Regional satellite imagery shows two defined stronger bands with one to our north and the other to the south early. The northern branch will sag closer to our area as the day progresses so look for high clouds to turn to snow showers and hopefully steadier snow into tonight. Accumulations will be limited but 2-4 would be a nice coating so do you snow dance.
Temperatures: This balmy southwestern flow held lows to 21 for Crested Butte and 24 for Gunnison. Highs will be in the low to mid 30s. Lows tonight will be back to the low teens as colder air moves in.
Outlook: Snow will continue into early Thursday with a shot of slightly cooler air helping dynamics a bit and hopefully producing more efficient snow production. Reality dictates maybe an inch or two early tapering to showers and spotty sun into the afternoon. Beyond that we see a weak ridge set up in the west that will keep us mostly sunny through Saturday with the next more promising system building in Sunday.
