Models Are Diverging On This Weekends Storm


The models are still flip flopping on the evolution of this weekends storm in the Rockies.  Right now my best Powder wisdom is that the highlights will be Saturday (Storm skiing) into Sunday for the San Juan’s (9-11 inches of wet snow, snow level at 8,500 feet). Go for the elevation like Silverton?  This should extend north into Crested Butte and perhaps Telluride (Wildcard).  Sunday will also see light to moderate snow over most of Idaho and the Tetons.

Sunday night will bring the main feature over the Wasatch (Cold air arrives in the evening) where Monday should be a powder day in most areas (7-11).  Snow continues in the Wasatch (Light to moderate) during the day Monday.

Monday night and Tuesday look very interesting for Colorado!  I am seeing a better chance of Statewide snow bringing appreciable amounts from Steamboat to the 4 corners. Winds shift to the NW so Vail, Beaver Creek, Aspen and areas along I-70 now stand a better shot of snowfall. The San Juan’s should also pick up additional snowfall. Tuesday could be a moderately deep day in many spots which could also extend into Wednesday!

Models are still not in agreement so much of this can change!  I am 100% confident in the San Juan’s for Saturday/Sunday (Dense snow), 85% for moderate snow in the Wasatch for Monday AM and 60% confident in moderate to some heavy snow for most of Colorado Monday night into Wednesday.  Let’s hope it all works out!
