Over the next 24 hours or so a system to the north will allow scattered snow in some of the higher elevations mainly above 9,000 feet. For most of us, the main system will come in early on Saturday. At the moment, it appears it will start as snow for most then snow levels should rise to between 7,500 feet and 8,000 feet. Below that, a wet mix or all rain will fall until the evening when it will switch back to snow around 6,500 feet. Throughout the morning on Sunday, the snow levels should rise again as the precipitation moderates. Then Monday morning a final piece should come through from south to north mainly affecting the southern half of the county.
Tuesday looks like another transitional day then it looks like another wet system will move through Wednesday and Thursday.
Here is the latest Euro through Monday at 11 am.
Liquid precipitation equivalent
Considering we are likely to see rain or rain/snow mix in areas below 8,000 feet, we may see 4-6 inches of snow in some areas that will turn into 2-3 inches of mush, or less by late Sunday or Monday. It is interesting that it shows lower snow levels to the east with Pagosa staying all snow. I will do a more thorough update tomorrow.
The upshot is it is a lot of moisture, and it is not the last of it.
