Pattern Change On The Way

9/29/22 Thursday 7:45 am
Expect isolated showers to develop again today over the higher terrain, showers may become more scattered in nature on Friday.
There is a lot for me to keep an eye on coming up. It appears that we are going to flip into a cooler wetter pattern beginning in the northern portions of the forecast area on Friday afternoon. Areas south will likely have to wait until the weekend.
I am not quite ready to go into the details as the models have not yet converged on a solution for snow levels. The Euro is quite aggressive. It is already showing accumulating snow for the higher elevations, with snow levels possibly dipping below 10,000 feet. We’ll see. The best chance of that happening appears to be Saturday night. Again, I am not quite ready to jump all in on this idea, but it is something I am tracking, and something people should be aware of if they have outside plans in the mountains this weekend. The most impressive totals, according to the model, would fall in the La Platas.
This could lead to some pretty dramatic snow and fall color opportunities for photography lovers. We went to Silverton yesterday, and along the drive saw near peak, to peak colors from Coal Bank north. It looks like Purgatory, depending on the upcoming weather could peak this weekend or early next week.
Here is a glimpse of what I saw
My next update will be on Friday. Thanks for following and supporting the site!
