Or down I guess is technically more correct. The polar jet is going to be making an appearance and forcing a cold front into Colorado overnight. These are the type of systems that get a lot of airplay but SW Colorado will feel less of the effects than the rest of the state.
Nothing much has changed since my last post. Monday will be colder than Sunday, Tuesday morning the temps should bottom out in our area. These systems tend to be fast movers. Anyone heading east tomorrow will be affected more than us. Eastern Colorado and out across the plains states will take it on the chin for a while tomorrow. Light snow showers will continue throughout the state until Tuesday.
After Tuesday the models diverge and are disagreeing on another potential system mid to late next week or weekend.
Here are the Euro snow totals through Tuesday. The actuals in Colorado and Wyoming may be higher because it looks like the ratios could be close to 20-1 in some areas.
Also notice that ABQ and Santa Fe will get in on the action since they are further east.
If something fun or unexpected happens with this the passage of the front I will post tomorrow, otherwise, I will update on Monday and see if we can better figure out the next system comes headed this way.
