Don’t worry, just because its not snowing now we still have more snowfall on the way, but the timing of the heavier pulses is harder to nail down. There is a deep moisture tap extending from Southwest Colorado all the way to Southern California. This moisture will be the fuel for our next round of higher precipitation rates this afternoon or tonight. A cold front is currently moving across Utah and as it moves into our area later today/tonight it should produce bands of heavier snowfall with increasing winds. Snowfall will continue on Tuesday as another trough moves into Northern Colorado on northwest flow. This front will be even colder and we should see another pulse in snowfall rates as this system moves into central Colorado. Mt CB has seen some of the best accumulations recently while we’ve been under southwest flow. This flow will be changing to more westerly or northwesterly on Tuesday and increase the accumulations for the western portion of our area.
