10-day Snow Forecast: Up to 2 inches above 6,000 feet Monday night – Wednesday morning (Oct 24-26)
A weather disturbance will drop down the Rockies, as advertised by us over the past week, tonight and cool us off significantly, temps on Tuesday will only make it to the low 50s in the valley and upper 40s on Wednesday. Showers are a possibility and snow levels will drop to most valley locals on Tuesday night, but the bulk of the precipitation with be east of the area so we are not expect much in the way of accumulation. Farther East, the Uinta Mountains may see a few more inches. Front range of the Rockies (Ft. Collins/Denver) may see 6-12 inches of wet snow. Main impact for us is breezy weather with much colder temps. Night-time lows will bottom out Tuesday night and Wed night with temps in the mid to upper 20s in the valley and teens in the higher elevations. Bring in tender vegetation and blow out the sprinkler system now. After this front moves south and east of the area, high pressure will build into the area and our temps will rebound to seasonal norms (low 60s) for the latter half of the week and weekend.
Long range: Fantasy GFS charts are still showing ridge breaking down first week of November for some possible storms. Any details are still impossible to determine but the overall pattern does look to change just in time for scheduled opening days at area resorts. We’ll let you know!
Bundle up tomorrow morning before work! It’s gonna be colder!
