Snow Thursday afternoon and night

12:30 PM MDT, Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Our cold and unsettled weather will likely continue into Saturday. However, the period with a risk of significant snow accumulation looks like late Thursday and Thursday night. A large storm system over the western United States has been keeping us in this cool and cloudy weather, and a big piece of the storm system will start to move eastward across the Rockies on Thursday.

Initial precipitation Thursday afternoon could be rain or mixed in the lower elevations, then snow late Thursday afternoon and into the night. There could be some brief periods of moderate or heavy snow. By Friday morning the general accumulations in the lower elevations will probably be in the range of 3-6 inches, with 5-10 inches above 7000 feet.

Period of clouds and maybe some more flurries or light snow could linger into Saturday, but accumulations after Friday morning are likely to be minor.
