We are closing in on yet another Wonderful Christmas in the Rockies! I am definitely looking forward to spending time with all of the family and sharing in many fun activities and the Reason for this joyous season!
I would like to give you all an update on the weather and travel across Colorado during our time together. We are currently sitting at a forecast time of about 204 hours out from today. For those traveling on Thursday expect some light snow showers possible in the Central Mountains and Berthoud Pass. Friday travelers could see less of a chance of snow along the Pass. There is no significant weather showing in the models at this time for travelers arriving. Temperatures are ranging from low teens at night to mid to upper 20's during the day. The only significant weather pattern showing up is about 264 hours out on Sunday. An upper level trough is projected to impact the central mountains with light to moderate snow accumulation lasting into Monday morning. Any inch accumulation is difficult to predict at this time. The position of this upper level disturbance will play an important role as to the amount of snow we could expect to see at the YMCA. As the forecast window decreases this will be easier to track and predict the significance of this Sunday storm. More to come in the following days!
