Back to Fall...

September 29th, 2009:

Wednesday will be another very warm and windy day.  High temperatures will likely end up 10 to 15 degrees above normal!  Below is a model depiction showing the warm "prod" of air along and east of the Rockies on Wednesday:

 

South to southwest winds gusting over 35 mph will prevail along and east of the mountains.  This will continue to dry the airmass out, so we are not concerned about showers or storms.  Right now, the best shot for storms looks to reside Wednesday night in western Kansas.

The cold front will roar through on Wednesday night, bringing much cooler weather to our area.  Temperatures that are 10 to 15 degrees above normal on Wednesday, will be about 15 degrees below normal on Thursday.  That's right, get ready for a 25 to 30 degree cooldown, with strong wind to boot.

The above map looks a bit different from it's 24 hour predecessor.  The good news is that the core of the cold air and the strongest energy will depart well to our northeast.  So other than a sharp cooldown and some wind, that should be about it.

    Well, this storm was somewhat of a disappointment. We've had snow most of the time today, but none has stuck because the temps and ground are too warm. Seems like the snow is all around us (north and south of us) but not here or pueblo....just like most all of last years storms. HOpefully this is the first of many snow storms to come our way.

    Well...looking ahead at most of the longer forecasts (accuweather, NOAA longterm forecast) it doesn't look like we're going to get our usual El Nino Big October snowstorm. Still lots of time i guess. Do you see anything different Brian? I hate to keep asking, but does it still look like El Nino is going to be here for a while? Albeit a weak one?

    Awesome...thanks, Man! If it is anything like 2006 we're in for a lot of snow!

    Tough to say for sure, but I usally bank on an October storm during an El Nino. This El Nino isn't that strong yet, and it likely won't be that strong in the end. However, it should generate a pattern conducive to some activity this Winter, much like 2006 & 07. Time will tell...

    Brian, Are you still thinking we may have a big October snowstorm...like other El Nino years?
