Tuesday After Update–Snow Forecast Through Thursday Morning

The Winter Storm Warnings go into effect at 5 pm tonight. A Blizzard Warning goes into effect on Wolf Creek Pass at or above 10,000 feet at 5 pm as well. Wind gusts exceeding 80 mph are possible on Wolf Creek Pass on Wednesday.

Here are the latest wind gust parameters from the NOAA NBM model for Wednesday. These are the peak wind gusts for the forecast area between tonight and Wednesday night.

Here are my snow forecasts through Thursday morning. I do expect additional snow on Thursday and Friday, as well as another small storm coming in on Sunday.
