Just a quick note that the last part of the storm cycle forecast for tonight and Wednesday will be much drier that I indicated might occur in my Sunday weather narrative, though a cold front is still expected to cross through our area Wednesday afternoon or evening.
While we will see snowflakes in town, accumulations should be minimal, with maybe an inch or so later today, but likely not much additional accumulations on Wednesday.
Snowfall will be more likely at the higher elevations, with 1-4” expected for later today and perhaps a bit less than that for later Thursday. Some of the Rabbit Ears CDOT cams showed what looked to me like freezing rain or drizzle for a time around noon today, so that is a possible hazard. Otherwise, travel should not be nearly as difficult as on this past Sunday and Monday.
It’s still looking dry for Thursday through Saturday, with substantially warmer temperatures returning along with the sun. Stay tuned for my next post on Thursday when weather forecast models should have a better idea on what happens with a possible Sunday storm.
