A few mountain weather stations did not dip below freezing last night with high pressure holding dry, warm air over Colorado. A low pressure system originating from the subtropics will try and fight through the ridge today, feeding moisture and continued warm temperatures, as it is deflected northwards by the ridge. Atmospheric temperatures look unfavorable for any real snowfall today. The southern Jet arrives tonight, accelerating the system eastward and improving snowfall dynamics , but only enough to wring out a couple of inches by Wednesday evening. A complex weather pattern is developing later in the week, with several circulation patterns arriving from the south. Stay tuned.
