Forecast discussion…

The low pressure responsible for our great snow has moved into NE Colorado this morning, switching our upper-level winds to a much drier NW flow. We may see a few flurries today, but for the most part, this storm is over. With the passage of the cold front, we will see some very chilly temperatures over the next couple of days with lows in the single digits and highs in the 30’s. Some of the models are hinting at another storm next weekend, but it’s a little early to have much confidence this many days out.
