Best odds for seeing measurable amount of snow is Thursday…but you certainly won’t need a yardstick to measure it!

Clouds

A nice combo of altocumulus lenticularis and a cumulus cloud over Pagosa Peak this morning!

Travel Disclaimer: While we would love to help you make decisions on whether to drive over the pass, plan your trip or predict if planes will be able to take off in Durango on a particular date, we don’t have the resources to do so…plus it puts us in potential legal liability if you go flying off Wolf Creek Pass when we suggested it would be a good day to travel!

Forecast discussion…

We have a tiny chance for a tiny amount of snow on the back side of a trough that is moving through Texas today. Meanwhile, another short-wave trough will zoom in from the Pacific NW today and arrive in the Four Corners by tomorrow afternoon, giving us a quick burst of moisture and a chance for light snow during the day and into the early evening. Looking further down the road, signs continue to look good for some decent snowstorms in early February.
