I’ll post early since the showers are ongoing this afternoon, and will continue through the night Friday into Saturday and on into the afternoon. I’m still dealing with spotty internets in St. Louis where an inch of rain is scheduled for tomorrow.
This weekend’s storm system is digging south of the state, basically throwing some moisture around the top of the Low up-slope into the Front Range (Figure 1). Our daytime rain, nighttime snow showers will continue through 8pm Saturday (Figure 2).
Through 7am, the HRRR actually gives us 1/2 inch to 1 inch of snow in places (Figure 3). The GFS (a less precise resolution) puts minimal snow around the area but not in town (Figure 4). For precipitation (water content) it is minimal as well (Figure 5).
The longer range forecast:
Our next low moves in Tuesday through Thursday bringing more rain (Figure 2). At least we return to the upper 60’sF and mid 70’sF after this system moves off later Saturday night.
