Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

Date: 04/10/2019

Old man winter is making a comeback today. A strong and cold low-pressure system is moving into Colorado this morning. Although temperatures are relatively warm early this morning, they will continue to drop as the system approaches. Light snowfall began around 1 am and will likely ramp up around mid-morning. The possibility of short periods of intense snowfall exists during the day. Along with the snow will be very gusty winds which will drift the new snow in open terrain. Winds will shift from the SW, this morning, to the NW as the system passes over the state. Snowfall will taper off this evening, but NW flow will keep light orographic snowfall going through tonight and into tomorrow. Temperatures will be unseasonably cold on Thursday with high temperatures only reaching the 20’s.
