Saturday November 20, 2021 Forecast First

Weather Forecasts

The second phase of our late week/early weekend storm system will conclude later today with a cold front swinging through the region. Expecting more light to moderate snowfall in the northern mountains and as the day progresses there should be light to moderate snowfall in the central mountain zones. The Grand Mesa should get 1-5 new inches with the deeper total occurring toward the evening hours. Once the front passes, a clear and cold night is anticipated for Sunday. Sunday afternoon is looking near perfect for mid November with mostly clear, dry and seasonal average afternoon temperatures.
The forecast is getting a little more confident in an unsettled pattern developing the days into Thanksgiving. Another cold front is expected to swing through just before next Thursday and there is an indication that a good source region of precipitation (the EPAC/Southern California) will drive a cut-off low pressure system into the Four Corners Region for the same timeframe. As of today this means that the mountain zones will be snowy. This is enough of an indication that vehicular travel should be interrupted for the Tuesday, Wednesday and possibly early Thursday. This forecast will change because the timing is an issue for the energy and the arrival of the precipitation. Regardless, all areas should expect a significate cold blow.
