January 27th - 28th Storm Potential (Brian Bledsoe)

As you know, we have storm that is going to try and target Southern Colorado.  This storm is not terribly strong while it impacts us, and is going to take a pretty far south track:

By Thursday evening, most computer models have the main storm centered over east-central New Mexico.  Not a bad track, if it were stronger.  However, it looks like it will remain kind of disorganized until it enters the Texas Panhandle.  What does that mean for us?  Unless something radical happens, it looks like it will produce some light to moderate snowfall for most of Southern Colorado.  Highest totals should  favor southern areas and mountain locations.

Potential Snowfall:

The storm will linger the longest for the Southeast Plains.  In fact if the storm ends up being a little stronger and stays on the same track, some of the Southeast Plains could pick up some higher totals.  Right now, that seems a little unlikely.

Bottomline...

Storm Timing:  Wednesday night through Thursday for western areas, and into Thursday night for the Southeast Plains.

Snow Totals:  Light to moderate, with mountains locations getting the most.

Blowing Snow Potential:  Seems pretty low, with wind not being a huge issue and the wet nature of the snow.

Metro Area and Interstate Impact:  Should be pretty low.  While there will likely be some slick spots here and there, travel shouldn't be impacted that greatly.

We'll keep watching closely, in case something changes...
