Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Sunday, March 31.

Date: 03/31/2019

There is a spinny thing down south, doing its thing by spinning and hanging out south of us. That spinny thing can also be called a closed low if you want to sound smarter. It’s going to keep spinning and pulling moisture through southern Colorado and up to our area in Central Colorado. Winds remain light and any snow that develops will mostly come from the storms own energy creating lift, as well as convection. This all could add up to some variable snow totals for us depending on how and where those convective cells set up and just how much moisture gets pulled into our area. 2 to 4” of snow would be the best average to put out there. Just remember, some places may get skunked and some could exceed with this setup. I’m sorry if the spinny thing throws a skunk at your doorstep.

Dry air will start moving in Sunday night and Monday is setting up to really be a beautiful one! Definitely a call in sick kind of beautiful day. I mean, if a skunk was hanging out at your doorstep, you might just feel a little sick right? Moisture starts moving in on Tuesday with the potential for some very light snow in the afternoon. The next storm looks to arrive on Wednesday and we’ll have to wait and see what kind of snow is associated with that storm.
