It'll be a gorgeous weather window through Sunday, then we'll see snow from Sunday night through Monday.
Thursday was a beautifully sunny day with a high temperature in the upper teens to mid-20s.
Now on Friday morning, there is no snow on the mid-mountain snow stake, though this will change in a couple more days.
The weather on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be dry and mostly sunny with high temperatures in the 20s. Caveats to the forecast include some high clouds filtering the sky on Friday night into Saturday and again Saturday night into Sunday, and conditions on Sunday could be breezy during the afternoon ahead of our next storm. Also, each morning, the base area could be colder than on-mountain temperatures (temperature inversion).
From Sunday night through Monday afternoon, the next storm will bring snow. This storm will not be that strong, but it should be strong enough to generate 2-5 inches of snow accumulation and provide softer turns on Monday morning and maybe through most of the day on Monday.
After that, there is about a 50/50 chance for snow later next week around February 9-11, and then looking further ahead, there will be a stormy weather pattern across the western U.S. between about February 13-17 and this should lead to more snow for us here in Colorado.
