Wolf Creek Pass looks a bit slick this morning but should clear up by noon. CDOT web cam 10/19/2021 at 8:30am (this time is off one hour)

At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 63 and the low this morning was 36. The peak wind was 45mph and it occurred at 1:35am ahead of the front.
We got more precip than I expected – an overproducer! Based on snotels and web cams I estimate Wolf Creek Pass got 2-4” of snow.
We caught the tail-end of the front this morning and got stronger winds and more than precip than I expected. Clouds and showers will clear out today after noon. Ridging will build over the region the rest of the week and give us nice fall weather.
Long range models have been going back and forth on a potential system moving through next Tuesday. Details are still very much in doubt at this point.
Today… Mostly cloudy skies this morning will give way to partly cloudy skies this afternoon. Spotty showers will end over the mountains by noon. A dusting of additional snow is possible. Patchy fog is also possible tomorrow morning in the low-lying areas.
High temps today will be in the upper 40s to mid-50s. Lows tonight will be in the mid-teens to upper 20s.
Winds will peak around 25mph this afternoon.
Tomorrow through Sunday… The glorious fall weather will continue! Expect lots of sun and chilly mornings.
Highs will be mid-50s to low 60s and lows will be upper teens to low 30s. (I don’t like forecasting big temp ranges but it’s common this time of year with our elevation differences.)
Monday and Tuesday… I’m keeping an eye on our next potential weather system.
