A system producing heavy snow in the central mountains arrives in SE Colorado overnight Sunday into Monday bringing moisture, windy conditions and colder temperatures. Snow showers will be possible across the I-25 corridor to start the day. This system will produce bands of snow through the day Monday. Areas under these bands will see periods of heavy snowfall which, with windy conditions, could create travel difficulties. Several inches of accumulation will be possible in areas where these bands develop. For more information click the ‘Weather’ tab...
Weather watchers say the snowpack this week reached the peak that was recorded last season, and more snow is headed to Colorado. Climatologist Klaus Wolter of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says it looks pretty good for the week.
Wolter says the snowpack this week matched the highest levels recorded last year, and that was at the end of March. The National Weather Service today said a potent winter storm will bring winds and snow to the mountains of northern Colorado tomorrow and tomorrow night, with depths of up to 18 inches expected.
Yesterday snowpack levels were at 77% of average statewide, up from 71% at the beginning of the month.
