As I mentioned the other day there is going to be an active weather pattern to talk about over the next few days. Unfortunately, the impacts on us will be minimal. The low-pressure center in California is wobbling around a bit, the models are trying to develop some late shower activity this afternoon and evening. A piece of energy broke away from the main system I feel like it is going to be inconsequential to all but a few in Montezuma and Dolores counties maybe San Miguel and Montrose County as well. If you are in those areas keep me posted. Dove Creek may see a little action.
After that fun passes the California low-pressure system is going to dive south and get a big boost as it gets into East Texas this weekend. Then it is going to cause a lot of problems for the southern states.
Back at home, a cold front will start heading into Colorado very early on Sunday, it looks great on the map and we might get a few flurries out of the deal but this is a better set up for Denver and the Front Range and northern mountains. Things will cool slightly here but not until the clouds clear out after the Front passes. There may be some frost and freeze warnings by Monday or Tuesday so if that affects you keep an ear open for that on Sunday. I will be tracking that as well, and will probably do an update just on the temps sometime on Sunday.
The cold should stick with us for most of the week until slowly eroding east mid to late week. That is how it looks now anyway.
I don’t think too many people are traveling right now, but if you are and have travel weather requests click the blue link to contact me. I have plenty of time on my hands right now!
