A forecast that could go from dry conditions to a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after lunch Thursday. A quick repeat Friday and again late Monday.
There is and will be snow falling in the High Country for the next few days (not a lot) as a low pressure system to our west advances through the region. This weather maker put the clouds in the forecast for many and the strong wind in the Four Corners region for the midweek. As this system moves through late Thursday, the lower valley elevations will be looking at a few rowdy storm cells tracking southwest to northeast. Storm activity could begin as early as noon Thursday and linger (barely) through midnight Friday. This low will leave the state by Friday morning, just in time for a “glancing blow” cold front to strike the northern portion of Colorado Friday midday. This separate weather maker will be our third attempt at getting some measurable rain this week before the Friday front quickly exits. Low elevation rain showers and High Country snow showers will round out the unsettled weather for this work week. The weekend begins with dry and warm conditions. There is already a stronger system on tap for late Monday and Tuesday of next week with more rain, snow and strong wind speeds.
