Precip summary… There has been no recent precipitation.
Today… Clouds will stick with us as the next system gets organized.
Wednesday… A system with little moisture will move through Wednesday night. The northwest to southeast track means we’ll get a few scraps while northern CO is favored. We could get a dusting of snow in the valley and our mountains could get up to an inch.
Winds will increase, especially in the mountains, as the jet stream dips south and cold air advection kicks in.
Thursday through the 28th… During the day on Friday a weak, fast-moving trough with little moisture could kick up a few snowflakes over the mountains.
Otherwise, ridging will build off the West Coast and put us under a prolonged northwest flow pattern. Systems will stay north of us. Northern CO will continue to be favored while we could get a few scraps.
The last few days of the month… The long range models indicate a more active weather pattern – YAY!
Unless something pops up, my next post will be on Thursday.
