Yesterday’s snowfall was a bit later and lighter then forecasted but we still did well with a general foot of snow so far. A low pressure system south of Colorado is producing excellent snowfall in the San Juan mountains. That same moisture is carrying over to our mountains too and we’ll see continued snowfall today. The big forecasted player in enhanced snowfall for our mountains was a convergent zone the set up to our west and hasn’t moved over our areas to produce the significant snowfall that was in the forecast yesterday. On Tuesday the low pressure to our south will be moving out of the area and we’ll see a dryer transition day. By Wednesday a shortwave will be dropping into Northern Colorado that should keep us seeing snowfall later this week.
