Southwest flow will be increasing today ahead of an incoming low pressure system. Winds will be on the increase and gusty this afternoon, even at valley elevations. Temperatures will be similar to the last few days until colder air arrives around Friday night.
This incoming low pressure is going to be an interesting weather system to keep reading about through the weekend and Denver news stations will probably get very excited. By Friday evening the center of the low presser will stall around the four corners region through the weekend. Very moist air will be pulled from the pacific and eventually the golf and potential snow numbers are looking high for Colorado. Our highest snowfall rates will probably be around Friday evening into Saturday, while the incoming weather will be from the southwest. Later in the weekend the incoming flow will be southeast to east favoring the continental divide and Front Range Mountains. The San Juan Mountains will be the biggest winner and if you’re craving some powder you should start planning that ski trip.
