Next storm will dig along the Wyoming/Colorado border tonight slowly edging towards Grand County by midnight.   Snow will break out over the front range foothills after midnight.  Loveland Pass Ski Basin will be on the southern edge until about 4AM when snow will turn moderate. Areas West of the Divide will see 2-4 inches from Aspen to Vail (Less near Aspen).  Don’t expect huge amounts overnight (2-5).  On Wednesday the cold core of the storm edges over the front range increasing snow intensity during the day.  The ski areas will see an increase of snow (A Basin and Loveland) during the morning hours. .  The moisture is approaching 1 inch of water so expect 5-11 fresh with the high end east of the Divide..  Loveland and A-Basin are wildcards, definate snowfall and an early guess of 7-9 inches by Wednesday afternoon. Areas north and east will see higher amounts. Any deviation of the cold front could bump up amounts in isolated areas.

Colder air will usher in more snow showers through Wednesday evening so areas that may have been closed on Wednesday could deliver fresh love on Thursday (Ridge at Loveland Ski Basin and bowl areas at A-Basin).

Temps are been very warm in the past several days so expect some “mank” under the new snow.  The good thing is that the initial surge tonight will be dense and the last surge on Wednesday will be blower. It is going to be a MAY POWDER DAY!
