8/22: High clouds and gusting winds.
Crested Butte Weather and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update-For Today- 8/22: This trough moving through to our north will feed another round of high clouds in by noon with a swing at very scattered afternoon thundershowers but fuel is scarce in this dry pattern. Look for high winds especially on the higher terrain for the north end of the valley but this will spread south affecting the entire valley into the afternoon. It’s a pretty benign mix but be prepared later in the day.
Temperatures: Overnight lows warmed with lingering clouds with Gunnison reporting 45 and 35 for Crested Butte. Highs will hold to 81 for Gunni and 75 for CB into the afternoon. Lows tonight will look about the same.
Outlook: This northern trough moves through and down the Front Range to close the week drawing a fresh shot dry high pressure in from the west. Precipitable water levels will be below normal and this combination of gusting winds and low humidity presents classic fire weather concerns so be smart. Temperatures climb again and clear sunny skies will make for a beautiful weekend with few variables in the mix until next week.
