The storms just keep rolling off the Pacific. The next one is spreading clouds across the region today with gusty south winds and light snow and drifting snow tonight. On Saturday afternoon, a cold front will sweep over Western Colorado, bringing increasing snowfall and gusty winds. The NWS will likely issue a Winter Weather Advisory for the Grand Mesa for Saturday into Sunday morning with 4-10 inches of new drifted snow.The winds will diminish on Sunday, but some snowfall will probably continue. Suggestion: don't use white eggs if you do an Easter egg hunt on the Mesa this weekend! But do try to get up and enjoy the last grooming of the season.
The last in this long series of Spring storms will bring more Mesa snowfall on Tuesday into Wednesday. Right now, that storm looks like a big cold blowy hum dinger, but keep checking the NWS forecasts for perhaps slightly better adjectives.
Then it looks like a strong ridge of High Pressure will build over the region next weekend. This could be the beginning of the crust season. Lets hope those dust layers remain buried.
This will be my last GMNC weather forecast for the season. But I will try to give you an idea of when crust conditions will be prime.
Thanks for your support this season.
Kiss a Groomer for Easter
