As smoke drifts around the Front Range, a parade of cold fronts is on its way. The first cools us about 15F for Friday then the next drops us another 10F on Sunday. Chances of rain are present with both fronts, but not much should fall. Temperatures look too warm for snow. There is an 'over the horizon' storm mid-week next week. We'll see what that does later.

Quite warm conditions return with a ridge overhead Wed/Thur and westerly down slope flow/winds. We'll touch 80F again! Then another cold front kicks us back to the 60'sF Fri/Sat and yet another cold front takes us down to the 50'sF for the end of the weekend. The previously mentioned snow chances seem very minimal along I-25 at this time.

Very nice mild weather weather is the story for this upcoming week. A trough will pass Tuesday and kick up some winds and cool us down, but we recover to the 70'sF until the weekend. A chance of rain (and snow?) return at the start of next week.

The winds are blowing out of the northeast already (Wednesday 4:30pm) and the cold air, some snow, and cold air is on the way (yes, lots of cold air). Rain/drizzle may form around 9pm and the snow should start to fall between midnight and 3am. We approach 10F Friday AM then rebound almost to 50F Friday afternoon. Things are mild and beautiful for the weekend and next week.

10/9 Wed. 11am Update: Next Storm/Next Snow Forecast Discussion from the Cherrywood Observatory –...

We have most of one more day (Wednesday) of nice weather before the front of the century arrives (OK, that was click-bait-verbiage). A strong front sweeps down through town around 5-6pm with a dry period after it (different from yesterday's forecast). Then a brief splash of rain will turn to snow around midnight. Snow chances increase through morning Thursday then decrease to snow showers now and then in the afternoon on to about midnight Thursday PM. We warm to the mid 40'sF Friday and then the 60'sF again for the weekend. It will be very windy and very cold with a hard freeze with temperatures dropping to 10-14F Friday AM. Be careful, dress in layers, and have your car, yard, and camper winter-ready.

We have two more warm/hot (for this time of year) days to go - Tuesday and Wednesday. A very power front blasts down the Front Range around 5pm Wednesday and the temperatures drop. Rain will form behind the front and change quickly to snow. The Longmont snow total (ignoring melting) will be about 1-3 inches. Banding of snow could double this range if we are 'lucky.' We'll spend about 30 hours below freezing dropping to a low Friday AM of 13F or lower. We will be about 33F below normal on Thursday. We snap back to the 60'sF for the weekend and beyond.

3:30pm Sun 10/6 Update: Next Storm/Next Snow Forecast Discussion from the Cherrywood Observatory –...

Another dry front sweeps down the Front Range this afternoon/evening cooling us further for Sunday to having a high almost limited to the upper 50'sF. We warm through Tuesday to almost 80'F then a strong cold front blasts in bringing rain and (still looking true) an inch or so of snow Wed/Thur.
