Fast-moving storm Monday night-Tuesday; meteors tonight

3:20 PM, Sunday, December 13, 2015

 

Another fast-moving winter storm will become more intense as it moves eastward from Colorado into the Great Plains late Monday night and Tuesday. The current expected track puts the greatest risk for a period of heavy snow and wind in eastern Wyoming (including Cheyenne), with lower risk of heavy snow in the Denver-Boulder-Fort Collins corridor, and very low risk from Colorado Springs south.

 

Will update tomorrow. Right now most probable looks like:

  • Cheyenne: about 6 inches, locally up to 10, with blowing snow, peak snowfall rates early Tuesday
  • Denver-Boulder-Fort Collins: 1-4 inches, mainly Tuesday morning
  • Colorado Springs: 0-2 inches

 

The annual Geminid meteor shower peaks in the pre-dawn hours on Monday. It’s one of the two best meteor showers of the year (the other being the Perseids in August).
