The simple part of the forecast is to say we’ll see accumulating snow each day through Wednesday. So we can all cheers to that. The harder part of the forecast is nailing down the specifies for each day. Today we’re expecting a slight decrease in precipitation rates before snowfall ramps back up this afternoon and tonight. The low pressure south of Colorado that is currently spinning moisture into our area is getting kicked to the east by an upstream shortwave trough dropping down on northwest flow. This trough looks to ramp up snowfall in our area again on Monday through Tuesday.
