The next in a series of frequent storms will be moving through the Front Range region on Sunday. This one is a closed circulation and the timing of the development and intensification will make the difference between a near miss and a significant snowfall.
The European model, one of the best performing, forecasts only a brief period for snow along the urban corridor Sunday morning (only minor amounts) and then more significant snow and wind farther out on the plains. The U.S. model has the storm develop a little sooner and therefore produces more significant snows along the Front Range. I will update tomorrow morning on the development of the storm.
