March 2, 2021 Forecast First

Weather

We will continue to experience a mostly clear sky, dry conditions, warming temperatures and rather quiet weather through Wednesday. Looks like a few 60 degree readings are possible for some lower/western valley locations for the midweek! These are not record highs, but warmer than the average by 10 degrees.

Late Wednesday night/Early Thursday morning we will see a cold front advancing toward the Western Slope. This will be tracking in from SOCAL and is quite a mild system. Call it an early spring storm that will bring snow to the highest elevations and a rain-snow mix to total rain for the lower elevations. This will be a quick system that should exit by late Thursday.

Ahead of this storm’s arrival, wind speeds should ramp up in the San Juans late Wednesday/early Thursday. Montrose could also get breezy breezy during that timeline, but all areas should maintain breezy conditions Thursday during the day as this storm crosses the Divide. Temperatures will only lower to the normal numbers (upper 40s/low 50s) and quickly recover Friday and jump up for Saturday.
