Sunday snow mountains, dry eastern Colorado

9:30 AM MST, Saturday, January 5, 2019

A couple of fast moving Pacific storm systems will move across the Rockies Sunday and Monday bringing some snow to the mountains and West Slope areas, but probably nothing much more than some increased cloudiness and slightly cooler weather for the eastern foothills and plains.

The heaviest snow is likely in the higher mountains and west-facing slopes where 6-10 inches could fall mainly on Sunday, but some on Monday too.

Snow shouldn’t make it too far east of the continental divide, but some light accumulations are likely in places like Rocky Mountains Park and Brainard Lake. Although some clouds and cooler weather are likely in the lower foothills and plains, temperatures are likely to remain near or a bit above average. Very mild weather is likely to return by mid-week.
