Back to Seasonal Conditions

Posted: Updated:

A new storm is taking aim at the Front Range.  The Western Mountains and Continental Divide are under a Winter Weather Advisory until 6 PM on Sunday.  As the storm moves into the Rockies, it will ring out the moisture from the Pacific against the mountain, leaving little for us along the Front Range.  However, as we move through the day on Sunday, an area of low pressure redevelops and pulls moisture up from the Gulf of Mexico and creates an upslope effect against the Front Range.  

There isn't a lot of cold air associated with this storm though.  The Arkansas River Valley will see more rain than snow with warmer temps on Sunday, Colorado Springs will have a good mix of rain and snow and the Palmer Divide can expect anywhere from 2-4".  As the storm pulls out into the plains Sunday evening, rain will slowly turn to snow, but little to no accumulation is expected as the main storm will have moved away, taking the majority of the moisture with it.

Cooler conditions are on tap to start the work week with highs only in the upper 30's and lower 40's with mostly clear skies.  Another weak system moves into the area on Wednesday night, but the chances for snow and rain are minimal at this time.
