Monday – Wednesday’s snowstorm could be the last of the winter.

Monday night through Wednesday morning will be cloudy with scattered showers and gusty winds.  The snow level will start around 10,000ft Monday evening, and then drop to 7,600ft by Tuesday morning, and finally down to 6,000ft Tuesday evening. As the snow level drops, moisture and precip will be decreasing which will limit snow amounts in the valley.

Valley areas will see a total of a trace to 3″ of snow. The mountains could see a total of 12-17″ of snow. Tuesday and Wednesday could be the last powder days of the season! Will Wolf Creek end the season with 400″ or more of snow? It’s going to be close!

This snowstorm is sponsored by The Springs Resort.

Rest of April

Once the system moves out on Wednesday, high pressure will move back in. This will usher in partly cloudy skies and average temperatures.

Remember, it is what we call wind season. Wind prone areas will see gusty afternoon winds more often than naught until the monsoon starts to set up in mid-June. This is because we still have snow in the mountains. With the winter like conditions up there, the temperatures are much cooler. Everything in nature wants to be equal. So the wind will rush about trying to even out temperatures.

La Nina is still firmly in place. which keeps the polar front jet to our north. Only an occasional system with the help of the MJO can break through. It looks like we will be dry till the very last few days of April.

I grew up in Montana where my love of the mountains is rooted. I was in the Air Force, forecasting aviation weather, for 24 years. I had eight assignments and my favorites were Colorado, Alaska, Korea, and Germany. I deployed a number of times including to Iraq and Afghanistan. After RV traveling for nine years, we found paradise in Pagosa. Here we enjoy playing outside in the spectacular San Juan mountains!
