Another convective round on tap.
TV10 Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley Daily Weather Update- For Today- 5/20: We are into a dry slot between waves in the west this morning as yesterday’s has moved east. We will see remnant moisture building from high clouds by noon to bigger convective cells from 2pm on. We will have a swing at more scattered thundershowers but these will remain hit or miss and slightly less prevalent drying after dark for another clear night. Get out early or be prepared.
Temperatures: Clear skies overnight allowed lows to drop back to 28 for Crested Butte and 32 for Gunnison. Highs will climb early to a cooler 57 for CB and 62 for Gunni before the clouds build. Lows tonight will look about the same with another clear morning.
Outlook: We are seeing a fresh round of pacific moisture feeding into the west coast that will form a low pressure trough that will be on us to start the week. We will see another closed low developing over Utah with moisture looping to the south in this trough and then wrapping back into the low a lot like last week but with enough of a southwestern component to keep us in the moisture to start the week. This is nothing too impressive but will provide fuel for daily afternoon convective build up to start the week under a milder southwestern flow.
