Mountain Weather

Date: 03/25/2016

A complex system system is developing over Colorado over the next 24 hours, and models are still in disagreement on how this one will come together. A shortwave trough embedded in northwest flow will push a cold front across our mountains late morning or mid day, spreading a few inches of snow across our zone today under moderate westerly winds. The orographically favored snow belt could squeeze out twice that. Tonight, a more significant trough descends towards the 4-corners region carrying good moisture. Snowfall accumulations generally look to be in the 5-10″ range out of this second pulse of snow, under tamer winds.
