WINDY conditions are incoming for Saturday followed by a warm up for the Front Range. The mountains will see snow this weekend causing difficult driving conditions at times.
The Upcoming Snow Cycle Could be Enough to Allow for More Ski Areas to Open and Could Start Our Winter Snowpack
Happily, I’m writing about a pattern change that should be a bit of a game-changer for Colorado. This won’t be a drought-buster but it will provide relief to the drought, it should kick off the snowpack season, and it should allow for more ski areas to open
It typically comes down to Loveland and Arapahoe Basin to open first in a given year depending on the snow cycle but this year, the snow didn’t favor them enough.
The upcoming snow storm will definitely have impacts on the wildfires currently burning but it may not be enough to extinguish the fires completely
After an exceptionally dry and wildfire-filled October, some cold and snow are in the forecast and it will be a blast of cold that will make it feel like the dead of winter.
Currently we are in a La Niña phase which is forecast to last through winter and into Spring of 2021 and just as you’d expect, that has implications of what our winter will look like here in Colorado.
90 to 100-degree weather sweltered Denver and the Front Range this August. Coupled with very dry conditions, we saw fires erupt and the drought worsen across the state.
