Colder Wednesday, rain, then snow

12:45 PM MST, Tuesday, November 19, 2019

A storm system moving across the southern Rockies will bring some heavy snow to the San Juan Mountains of Colorado and into northern New Mexico, but with lesser impacts for the Front Range urban corridor. It is likely the the Front Range region will get some accumulating snow, perhaps in two distinct periods Wednesday through Friday morning.


Rain is likely to develop below 7500 feet Wednesday afternoon and change to snow in the evening (all snow in the higher elevations). It looks like about 1-3″ below 7000 feet by Thursday morning, and 3-8″ in the higher elevations (greatest amount above 8500 feet). The storm won’t completely move through until Friday morning, so it is likely to remain unsettled through then. But it appears likely that we will be in a lull Thursday followed by another good chance for light snow (1-3″) across the region late Thursday and Thursday night.


The weekend looks dry. The next chance for snow should be late Monday or Tuesday.
