I’ll get to the weather in a moment, but I first want to announce that when my subscription for WordPress (host to this blog) is up for renewal on January 16th, I won’t be renewing. I’ve been doing these blogs for 20 years, first as an email list, then through this site. This blog has never been a paid job for me. I don’t regret that at all because I love the weather and sharing my knowledge of it. I am also honored by the hundreds who follow the blog and the praise I have received from many of you. Thank you!
Because of the popularity of this site, I have felt compelled to write blogs while I was away on vacation to answer questions about pending storms. Again, I have absolutely no regrets doing that, but I don’t want to do it any more. I am now retired from my main job and I am exploring new opportunities in meteorology and climate science. It seems like a good time to let go of the blog.
Some colder and unsettled weather will be moving through the region today. It appears there will be little or no precipitation for most of the Front Range lower foothills and plains. The exception may be south of Denver where there may be an inch or two of snow (including Colorado Springs). Some minor snow accumulation is probable higher up too, around Nederland and Eisenhower Tunnel. Dry and relatively mild weather are likely to return for Monday-Wednesday, and maybe the whole week.
