Well folks, it looks like that bitterly cold Arctic airmass that appeared as though it would impact us from 12/21-24, will end up well to our northeast. So for the next 10 days or so, we will likely look like this:
Red and orange mean warmer than normal temperatures, while blue means colder than normal. The current pattern should keep the bulk of the coldest air well to our northeast. That doesn't mean we won't have a cold front or two to deal with during this time, but they do not look significant.
Regarding precipitation, we will likely be pretty dry in Colorado too. The map below shows who is likely to get the rain/snow and who isn't. Again, this is for the next 10 days...
Blue and purple show where the wetter than normal areas are located, while the green to red shade shows areas that will be drier than normal. A storm that will eject northeastward from Mexico will likely paint a wintry scene across parts of Texas & Oklahoma and northeastward. Colorado will likely be too far north to benefit from any of that good moisture...
So, while we won't see the Arctic air returning anytime soon, we also won't be seeing any significant moisture. I'll keep you updated on that trend...
