Well, it would be easy to turn the weather forecast into a wish cast this morning. We have a more active weather pattern, but we don’t have enough factors lining up to produce significant snow. Wednesday morning clouds are pushing across the UT/CO border on southwest flow. So we should see increasing clouds this morning and partly cloudy sky in the afternoon. A passing shortwave trough and colder air moving in this evening should produce a few flakes by Thursday morning. A larger low-pressure trough brings increased moisture for Thursday into Friday and a decreasing temperature trend. This looks like a trace to 3 inches of snow by Friday morning. That’s up to 76.3mm if you want a number that sounds deeper. An active weather pattern remains as we head into the weekend and next week. So we’ll continue to have the door open for storms later on the weekend and next week.
