A couple more rounds of cold and damp for Front Range

12:00 noon, Wednesday, March 30, 2016

A winter storm is in progress for Cheyenne with heavy wet snow (another 5-10″) and wind through the day today, and even heavier amounts to the north of Cheyenne. This blog will focus on the more variable weather along the Colorado Front Range (Fort Collins, Longmont, Boulder, Metro Denver, Colorado Springs).

The first round of unsettled weather yesterday afternoon and evening brought light snow in some of the higher elevations, and rain in the lower elevations. Two more rounds of unsettled weather are expected.

 

Round 2 (Wed): This afternoon and early evening will see gusty north winds (especially just east of the foothills), more numerous showers,  and colder temperatures. Where the showers are heavier or more persistent, a changeover to snow is likely, with spotty accumulations.

Nederland, Estes: 1-4 inches

Fort Collins, Longmont, Boulder, metro Denver: mainly 0-1 inch, but some local areas may get a fast 1-3 inches.

Colorado Springs: little or nothing

 

Round 3 (Thu): After a lull tonight, a final disturbance should move north to south and affect the Front Range on Thursday from late morning to early evening. Snow, or rain changing to snow, will probably be mostly in and near the foothills and Palmer Divide.

Nederland, Estes, Palmer Divide: 3-6 inches

Boulder, south and west suburbs of Denver: 1-3 inches

Fort Collins, Longmont, DIA, Colorado Springs: trace-1 inch

 

The weekend is looking dry and springlike.
