After a mild Saturday, temperatures to finish the weekend will be MUCH colder! A system to our west pushes into SE Colorado overnight. Snow showers will be possible by early Sunday morning across the I-25 corridor with a change to rain and snow showers through the afternoon. Accumulation should be minimal as most moisture looks to be light and temperatures will warm into the upper 30s and 40s through the afternoon, though areas in higher elevations could see 1-2". The main impact will be the cold along with winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
Colorado's unseasonably warm October is delaying the opening of ski and snowboard season.
Loveland is often the first resort to open and usually has
skiers on the slopes by mid-October.
The resort began making snow October Sixth and had one run
nearly covered, but the warm weather melted some of the powder. For
two days it was even too warm to make snow.
Arapahoe Basin is competing with Loveland to be the first resort
to open. It had planned to open Friday, but will likely delay its
opening because of the heat.
Much cooler temperatures are expected this weekend, and that
could help the resorts.
