Models have come into better agreement in regards to timing and precipitation totals for the next storm. Snow will break out over higher elevations after 6 pm Tuesday. Snow levels will fall to around 8,000 feet by Wednesday morning. It still appears the highest totals will be over the northern portions of the forecast area. 3 to 6 inches of snow will accumulate from Telluride over to Red Mountain Pass.
1 to 3 inches of snow will be possible around Silverton and Molas Pass. A dusting to an inch will be possible for Purgatory, Coal Bank, and Wolf Creek.
The models are already sniffing out the next storm! It looks like it could approach our area next week around the 17th or 18th. At this point, both the GFS and the Euro are showing a significant cold snowstorm. All three models are showing a pattern change with deep low pressure over the Rockies. Let’s hope this trend continues!
My next update will be on Tuesday afternoon. I will be posting precipitation maps for tomorrow night’s storm so stay tuned. Thanks for following and supporting the site!
