Unless something changes the operational models of the GFS and Euro have really de-emphasized the effects of the larger colder storm coming in late Saturday into Sunday. Early season or maybe I should refer to them as pre-season storms, have always favored this northerly track, there is nothing particularly unusual about not getting October snow, but it is fun when it happens.
As I mentioned the other day a smaller piece of energy will come across Thursday night or Friday morning, this smaller system could generate some flurries mostly around Purgatory and points north. Then Saturday night and Sunday another larger colder, wetter system will work its way into the region and at the moment looks like it will bring snow to the Northern and Central Colorado mountains. The path could change, but as I said earlier the operational models of Euro and GFS have really moved north. The ensembles tend to lag the operational models but you never know. I am going to give it another 48 hours and I will update Thursday unless I see a big swing overnight.
Hang in there it is just a matter of time.
