Weather Discussion

Colorado sits at the base of a broad trough of low pressure covering much of the western U.S. There are some shortwave disturbances that bring periods of unsettled weather to our mountains, but little in the way of accumulation. A cold front will keep daytime high temperatures in the low to mid 30s. Moderate to strong southwesterly winds will be gusty at times, and skies are mostly cloudy with gradual clearing late in the day. Wednesday night is mostly clear to partly cloudy with low temperatures around 20 degrees and no precipitation for most mountain locations. Thursday is a bit warmer and sunnier with high in the mid to upper 30s.

Our next chance for better snowfall doesn't arrive until mid next week.
