Saturday was a powder day, and more snow is on the way through Monday.
Saturday was a powder day in the morning thanks to the 9 inches of snow on the report, and then an additional 4 inches accumulated at mid-mountain through the day as storm energy and moisture lingered over Colorado.
On Saturday night, the snow stopped as the wind direction switched to blow from the southwest which is unfavorable for snowfall.
From Sunday through Sunday night or early Monday morning, we should see a break in the snow. Then during the day on Monday and through Monday evening, the next storm will create a narrow band of intense snow that will slowly move from north to south across the northern mountains of Colorado.
I think we'll see 4-8 inches of snow from this narrow band of intense snow and the best chance for powder will likely be during the day on Monday and maybe the first chair on Tuesday morning. My confidence in this forecast is only moderate as it is impossible to know exactly where the narrow band of snow will track, so actual snowfall amounts could be a bit lower, or equally possible, snow totals go above the high end of the forecast range.
From Tuesday through Friday, we will see dry weather.
Then around the weekend of February 4-5, we might see snow, though, at the moment, the chances for decent snow accumulation are pretty low, just about 30% or so.
Looking further into the future, we will have another chance for a storm around February 7-9, and potentially yet another storm around February 12-14.
