Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

The old “Clipper Storms”. That’s what it is going to be all about over the next few days. Small storms are dropping down the old Rocky Mountains on NW to SE flow and having various impacts to Colorado as they pass on by. Last nights clipper storm will start drying out early today. Looks like we should see clearing sky today, but moisture hangs out at lower elevations which makes me wonder if we’ll see some low valley clouds persist longer through the day. Orographics should keep snowfall and clouds around longer in the Paradise Divide and Irwin areas.

After a brief break today, we’ll see another small storm clip Colorado Thursday Night. Not much is expected out of this one. The next clipper rolls across Colorado Friday Night and this one looks better and should bring a few more inches of snow. Looks like drier weather for the weekend.
