Another classic mid winter inversion this morning with temperatures in Gunnison down in the basement at -26ºF while stations at 11 and 12,000ft sit at around 15ºF above zero. Clear skies and plenty of sunshine will make the day seem warmer. Light southwest winds near ridgetop will keep the picnics brief, as high clouds begin to stream in this afternoon ahead of our weak storm for Tuesday night. Looking ahead, the dreaded Rex Block of high pressure is delayed with a series of weak shortwave pulses of moisture caught in a steady northwest flow aloft.
