4/13/23 Thursday 7:40 am
Cooler, wetter conditions are on the way. Isolated to scattered showers will become more common today, especially in higher elevations. Occasional gusty winds will occur as the pressure gradient tightens as tonight’s storm approaches. Moisture is streaming in from the southwest but the main precipitation producer won’t arrive until this evening.
Snow levels should remain high with this system. For most locations over 9,000 feet, 3 to 6 inches of snow will be common tonight through tomorrow. There may be an upside surprise of 8 to 12 inches on Wolf Creek Pass. Despite the date, those trying to travel over the passes early tomorrow morning will experience winter conditions so keep that in mind.
There may be a bit of a spring mix between 7,400 and 8,000 feet with mostly rain below 7,000 feet. Much cooler temperatures are expected on Friday and Saturday.

One thought on “Thursday Update”
Sudden onset of “thunder snow” at intersection of CR 228 and 502…elevation 7,750 feet. Temperature is about 32 degrees….huge snowflakes and high cross winds. Just one sudden burst of thunder and then silence preceded the snow.
