It is currently snowing on the 550 passes and Telluride. Moderate snow is falling north of Silverton, light showers are occurring between Silverton and Coal Bank. The majority of the energy of the storm is far to our north. Telluride could sneak 2 to 4 inches out of this system if they are lucky. Snow should get more intermittent late in the day and should leave the area by this evening.
There is another shot of snow for Saturday but the models disagree on the storm track. The Euro is favoring more of a southerly track, while the GFS is showing a northerly track similar to what we are seeing today.
The models are still inconclusive in the 7 to 10 day period as well as the 15 day period. There are some signs of a pattern change after 15 days in a couple of the long term models.
I will be tracking the Saturday storm and I hope I will have something to talk about. For now, no news is no news. Thanks for following!
