Mountain Weather 2/19/2017

Date: 02/19/2017

A low-pressure trough will lift into Colorado this afternoon. This will bring in a warm, moist airmass on southern flow, allowing snow showers to develop late this afternoon into tonight. Some of these snow showers may have a short and intense nature to them, like an afternoon thunderstorm in the summer, thanks to convective day time heating. Winds will also be on the increase this afternoon as this next weather event arrives. A upper level ridge will bring a dry start to next week before we see a return to unsettled weather by the mid-week.
