Coming up, and as we’ve talked about since last week, we will indeed see a storm on Friday (March 23rd).
However, the caveat is that this storm will be very warm, and most lower elevations will see rain during the first part of the system on Friday. Then we’ll see colder air on Friday night when snow levels could dip down to 8,000-9,000 feet.
Keep your eye on the webcams on Friday evening and the snow reports on Saturday morning to see how much snow we can get out of this storm. There is a lot of moisture with this system, so the potential exists for significant accumulations, but the warm temperatures will likely limit total accumulations to a few inches.
After this system, the weekend will be dry, then a storm will stall somewhere near New Mexico next week. This could mean chances for significant snow for 1-3 days next week, but we won’t be able to know exactly where this storm will stall for many days, and its exact track will determine if and where we see the most snow.
Thanks for reading!
I will be on a backcountry hut trip in Colorado and will not have internet access. My next update will be on Monday morning, March 26th. Thanks for understanding!
