Some clouds and a micro chance for rain-snow this week.

I just returned from a 10 day tour to Arches, Canyonlands and Bryce National Parks so you’ll have to put up with some of my images from the trip! This one is from Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. Some of my large canvas prints are currently being displayed at Two Old Crows gallery on Lewis Street. Photo by Mark Langford

10-31-21: 10:00am update…

Nothing spooky about our Halloween weather today, just some harmless high clouds (cirrus) drifting through. Our high temps will be a little lower today due to the clouds, but no chance for precipitation today. A weak disturbance moves through on Tuesday giving us a tiny chance for light rain and a few snow showers, but mainly just clouds and cooler high temperatures. There could be another shot for some precipitation by Friday but the models continue to evaporate those odds over the past couple of days.

Wrapped by fronts! A pretty strong surface front has moved through the front range this morning dropping their temps from the 70’s yesterday to the 30’s under cloudy skies today. As is the case with most of the fronts that hit the front range, the cold air is blocked by our nearby mountains and this front will stay to our east.

The latest NWS 3 day rainfall forecast from today through Wednesday…not very promising!

The latest NWS Blend of Models snowfall forecast forgot about us this week!

My forecast…

The rest of today…Partly cloudy this afternoon. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s with SW winds in the 5-15mph range.

Monday: Pretty much a clone of today’s weather with high clouds becoming thicker in the afternoon. Lows will be in the 20’s and highs in the 50’s.

Monday night-Wednesday morning: Mostly cloudy with a tiny chance for light rain and some snow showers. Lows will be in the 20’s and highs in the low 50’s. If you get more than 0.05 of precipitation consider yourself lucky! Our mountains could pick up an inch of snow, but amounts will most likely be less.

Wednesday afternoon-Saturday: As of this morning, our second chance for precipitation has evaporated from the models but I’ll keep watching. Partly cloudy through this period with highs in the 50’s and lows in the 20’s.
