Tuesday was a beautiful day and we'll enjoy one more on Wednesday ahead of our next round of snow beginning on Thursday afternoon. For Wednesday, expect mostly sunny skies in the morning and increasing cloud coverage in the afternoon, along with temps climbing in the 30s.
Thursday - Friday
Increasing cloud coverage and wind out of the southwest on Thursday morning will be the signal for our next round of snow that is currently marching east from California. As of now, it looks like snow will begin to fall late Thursday afternoon or early Thursday evening.
This system will be a perfect end to an above-average March thanks to a strong cold front, decent moisture, impressive storm energy, and a west-to-west-northwest wind from Thursday night through Friday evening.
In total, look for 2-4 inches in Friday's reports, followed by another 2-6 inches from Friday morning through Friday evening thanks to westerly winds (ideal orographics) on Friday as the storm strengthens over eastern Colorado. First chair Friday should be good but keep an eye on Friday afternoon and first chair Saturday for sneaky good fluffy turns.
Saturday - Sunday
The skies will begin to clear on Friday night and set us up for dry weather under sunny skies through the upcoming weekend, April 1-2. Expect light winds and temps in the 20s to low 30s on Saturday, followed by more cloud coverage and increasing wind speeds with temps in the low 30s on Sunday.
Next Week & Beyond
Following the break on Saturday and Sunday, we'll be tracking another impressive storm for early next week. Snow showers should begin to fall late Sunday or early Monday, followed by another blast of cold air and good storm energy on Monday night and into Tuesday.
Keep an eye on Tuesday, April 4 for a fantastic early April powder day.
Looking further ahead, we'll likely see additional chances for snow from Wednesday, April 5 through Saturday, April 8. There are then signs for a drier pattern as we head into the week of April 10. We'll see if this comes to fruition.
Thanks for reading! Next update on Thursday.
