Winter Returns Friday; or Snow on the GMNC Parade

A big ridge of High pressure moves over Western Colorado Tuesday and Wednesday, so enjoy the sun and mild temperatures. These will be the nicest ski days for awhile, and the best nights to enjoy the upcoming full moon that occurs next Monday, the 9th. (For barrels of fun tonight, Tuesday, you are welcome to join the GMNC Board meeting at 6:30PM in Delta at the First National Bank behind McDonald's.) High clouds begin to invade on Wednesday, then thicken and low on Thursday as the SW winds pick up. Snow showers start early Friday morning and continue off and on (mostly on) through next Tuesday. Expect snow accumulations of 4-8 inches Friday through Sunday, with something like 8-16 inches total through next Tuesday with significant drifting. Afternoon temperatures will range from 18-25F but SW winds of 10-20mph with higher gusts will make it feel colder.
So the Grand Mesa Gliders need to bundle up for Saturday morning's lesson and plan to ski in the trees. The 2nd full moon, bonfire party is looking quite threatened. And the Heart Throb 50k informal marathon may see epic conditions on Sunday.
I will try to update with more detail as we approach the weekend. Until then, check out the lastest conditions and forecast:
