Colder, damper weather this weekend

12:35 PM MDT, Thursday, March 28, 2019

At noon a cold front was sweeping southwest across the northeastern Colorado plains. As a result the temperatures along the Front Range may start to level or cool off a little as we go through the afternoon.

 

The colder air mass and an upper level storm with Pacific moisture are likely to result in a colder, occasionally damp weather Friday and Saturday. There could be some sprinkles around this evening, and a chance of showers (rain plains, snow mountains) Friday afternoon. But the best chance for precipitation is Friday evening through early Saturday and that would be mainly snow at all elevations. The most likely accumulations are 2-6 inches above 7000 feet, and a trace to 2 inches below 7000 feet. There are some mesoscale models suggesting a little more than that in the lower elevations, but that chance appears small and I’ll update tomorrow if necessary.

 

Sunday should be the better of the weekend days, but still a little cool. Mild spring weather is likely to be back on Monday.
