Friday

A band of heavy snow moved in earlier than expected on Thursday night and delivered 3 inches. This was a welcome surprise when I first checked my iPhone snow stake cam widget this morning!

We should now receive somewhat of a break on Friday morning before another wave of snow and cold air rolls into Colorado around midday. We should then receive very fluffy snow as light, west-northwest to northwest winds settle in through early Friday night.

In total, look for another 2-4 inches through Friday night.

As I've been mentioning over the past few days, Friday will be a storm skiing type of day with the turns getting softer by last chair and then there should still be leftover powder on Saturday morning from the snow that falls on Friday night.

Saturday - Sunday

Any lingering snow showers should come to an end by Saturday morning as VERY cold temps park over Colorado. Temps will start near 0F on Saturday morning and will struggle to climb into the low teens under partly sunny skies. Bundle up!

After another chilly night on Saturday night, Sunday should start in the single digits under partly sunny skies. Temps should then slowly climb into the 20s ahead of maybe a few snow showers on Sunday afternoon and evening.

Next Week & Beyond

We'll be in somewhat of a funky pattern during the week of December 11 as just enough cold air and storm energy linger around Colorado to bring us off-and-on chances for light snow.

Looking further ahead, we'll probably have to stay patient until at least December 18 for something stronger to roll through Colorado.

For the last month, every time the longer-range models start to develop a stormier pattern along the West Coast, it flips and we maybe get 1-2 waves of snow before another drier period of 7-10 days redevelops. We'll just continue to take it one week at a time.

Thanks for reading! Next update on Saturday.
