June is usually the most weather-boring month of the year. As if to one-up yesterday’s storm, a June Winter Storm is going to drop into Colorado late on Monday, mostly affecting the northern and central mountains.
But according to the Euro, the Northern San Juans could get a little accumulating snow in areas that favor NW Flow. So we’re mostly talking about the Telluride, Silverton, Ouray triangle. And not just the highest peaks. The accompanying cold front would be cold enough to snow down to about 7,500 feet!
NW flow will prevent any real accumulation near Purgatory, but, a few flakes blowing around the resort would not surprise me. Same with Mayday.
Here is what that looks like. This is 3 am Tuesday morning.
6 am Tuesday morning
As far as totals go, it is a little early to be looking, but let’s do it anyway.
This looks a little crazy to me… I like the Euro’s take better.
We will need to talk about temps for Tuesday morning. Right now the GFS is showing 33 degrees at DRO. FYI, in this case, higher altitudes in the north and mid-elevations will be colder than some of the valleys, so keep that in mind if you have sensitive vegetation.
Thanks for following and the kind support! I will update everyone again mid to late tomorrow afternoon.
