A conveyor belt of tropical moisture is streaming over Colorado under southwest flow. Despite high moisture amounts, some other ingredients needed for big snowfall amounts are lacking. The first pulse of moisture is passing overhead early this morning uneventfully. The next push is crossing Southern Utah and Arizona early this morning and looks to be a better snowfall producer. We should see light snowfall by midday as it moves into the Elk Mountains, with a few inches of accumulation, potentially more at the highest elevations. The next wave looks to arrive Thursday evening, bringing another round of snowfall before clearing on Friday.

A warm, moist Pacific system is moving onshore this morning. We’ll see clouds thickening and lowering through the day ahead of it. Although the system is packing unusually high amounts of moisture, mountain snow accumulations are forecasted to be relatively low because atmospheric lift is hurting. Moisture will continue advecting over the Elk Mountains through the week, bring continued pulses of snow.

Weather Summary: A weak disturbance over our area will finish up snowfall this morning as it moves off to our east. Skys will be clearing throughout the day as we move back into more mostly clear and warm weather for Tuesday. Wednesday, a warm and moist system will move into our area on Southwest flow. More aspects of this system need to line up before we can accurately estimate snowfall but around 3-5” by Thursday for our mountains would be a start.

24 Hour Weather Outlook

Weather Discussion: Not a whole lot of excitement in the weather forecast unless you like warm and sunny as that’s the general format into next week.. Winds will increase slightly on Saturday ahead of some Pacific moisture moving into Colorado on Sunday. Northern Colorado may eek out a few inches of snow but we’re more likely to just see increased cloudiness in our area. Heading into next week currently looks to stay dry with above average temperatures.
