Deep moisture under NE flow tonight will bring a swath of snowfall from Pikes Peak through Rocky Mountain National Park tonight. Our models are showing 3-7 inches likely above 10,000 feet favoring the Continental Divide. Winds shift to a more favorable direction for perhaps higher snow totals in the southern mountains of Colorado including Northern New Mexico Wednesday/Thursday. Southern mountains near Pikes Peak could see up to 14 inches of snowfall by late week.
Ski areas from Angel Fire and East will see moderate snowfall at the highest peaks. Taos is a wildcard and will see light to moderate snow at times. Wolf Creek should benefit from it’s southern aspect and high elevation with perhaps light to moderate amounts? The best snowfall from the Front Range of Denver and north will be tonight and Wednesday. Southern mountains are favored Wednesday-Thursday.
Long Range? Models put us into a lull after this storm cycle with a hint of some storms to impact the Cascades and perhaps northern areas of the Rockies towards the end of October.
