Dry, partly to mostly cloudy, and a high temperature in the upper 20s to low 30s.
Snow should begin on Monday late morning or midday and continue through late Monday night. All models show between 3-6 inches for Winter Park, so I’ll keep the forecast as-is. There will be softer snow on Monday afternoon, and the best fluffy powder should be on Tuesday morning with cold temperatures in the single digits. The wind direction on Monday night will blow from the north, and this could add a bit of extra snow since a north wind can be quite favorable for Winter Park.
Rest of Next Week
We’ll have a break in the snow on Tuesday, then a series of weak storms will clip northern Colorado from Wednesday through Saturday. Snow amounts during any one 24-hour period may not be that deep, but multiple days of light snow can make conditions sneakily superb, and my picks for the softest, and perhaps sneaky deep snow would be Thursday and Friday.
End of January / Early February
Models continue to show that storms will clip northern Colorado with light snow at times over the weekend and through next week, so there might be another day or two with powder before the month is over. And the longer-range forecast is trending toward more active weather for all of Colorado starting in early February.
