Woohoo! A series of Southern Track storms is looking to stay on course which means decent snows.
Let’s chat. Look at this cool thing.
Okay, so what does it mean? It means we have solid chances for precipitation over the next week. Satellite imagery from Wednesday midday shows a lot but lets focus on what’s coming. There’s a solid stream of clouds over Cali and draped back to Hawaii (just proving that the moisture is there!) Actually, this is worthy to note: so much moisture that there are Flash Flood watches and Winter Storm Warning up for a good chunk of Cali.
|Active Cali Weather for the next 36 hours|
High Surf: 20 foot swells possible!
High Wind: Gust to 60 mph possible
Winter Storm: Most location in the Sierra are expecting over 2 feet by Thursday night! (wake up Mammoth and Tahoe! Pow is coming!
Okay back to Colorado – just super excited for Cali.
NEAR TERM (through Friday):
We have steady cloud cover over the state – this is going to be one of those stretches of cloudiness that Colorado doesn’t seem too often. By day 3 of clouds – everyones going to be questioning what’s going on. Snow, mainly light stuff, will fall in the mountains. By Friday night the Front Range and Eastern Plains of Colorado will likely see something. Rain changing to snow or all snow – either way amounts will generally be light.
|Winter weather advisories and winter storm watches are likely|
|EURO shows no big snow for Denver through Tuesday|
|GFS show a decent chance at accumulating snow – possible advisory criteria for Denver|
Now, yes Denver *could* see accumulating snow. We have to watch how that storm organizes (remember this is that storm that is currently NW of Hawaii! – so, there’s time to wait)
Needless to say, there is active weather continuing through the next 10 days. This all comes with temperatures continuing on the downward trend – which means this weekend and next week are going to be cold!
|Brrr. It’s cold outside baby.|
It looks like Tuesday and Wednesday of next week will be dry before our next storm moves in! Keep checking back in.
