We'll wrap up our latest storm with 4 inches. Dry weather returns from Tuesday through Thanksgiving Day. Our next round of snow will arrive early Friday morning, with the heaviest snow on Friday night and into Saturday. Dry weather settles back in on Sunday and likely remains in place through next week.
We came into our latest storm thinking that we would receive 3-6 inches and we ended up with 4 inches. I had low expectations for this storm and that was the right call for this one.
Clearing skies are now taking over on Tuesday morning.
We'll enjoy three days of dry weather from Tuesday through Thursday, with sunny skies on Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by increasing cloud coverage on Thursday. Temps will climb into the upper 30s during the day, with overnight temps in the teens.
Friday - Sunday
Our next round of snow will begin to creep into Colorado through Thursday night under south-to-southeasterly winds. This will bring mostly light snow through Friday ahead of much colder air arriving on Friday night.
The storm will then rotate and our winds will shift to blow out of the west and northwest on Friday night and into Saturday. This will be the time to watch for the heaviest snowfall.
We'll then continue to receive fluffy snow through Saturday ahead of the storm winding down through Saturday night. As I've been mentioning, this weekend's storm will also tow in very cold temps, with highs in the teens over the weekend and overnight lows dropping below 0°F each night on the mountain.
In total, look for 3-6 inches from Thursday night through Saturday night, with soft(ish) turns possible on limited terrain for Saturday and first chair Sunday.
We'll then settle right back into dry weather for the final days of November.
The good news is that we should remain cold enough for very efficient snowmaking through much of next week. The bad news is that I don't know when our next chance for a significant storm will arrive.
