Precipitation summary… There was no measurable snow in the last 24 hours.
Radar is boring in our area this afternoon.
Saturday and Sunday… We’ll see more clouds as upper level west and then southwest flow gradually push more moisture into the region. A weak trough will move through tomorrow afternoon, but it won’t have much moisture.
Saturday an inch of snow is possible in the mountains and two or three snowflakes are possible in the valley.
Late Sunday night snow will start increasing over the mountains. I expect Wolf Creek to report 1-3” of new snow on their Monday morning report.
Monday and Tuesday… A low pressure system will move through. I don’t like the track. The low will be to our south, so we’ll just catch the northern edge. If it tracks farther south than expected, it will be a dud.
Snow will fall on and off from early Monday morning to noon on Tuesday.
My snowfall forecast…
My next post will be on Sunday.
