Saturday Evening Forecast…”snow-globe” flurries in the air

Posted at 3:53 PM, Dec 01, 2018

Forecast: In the temperature department, no change in previous thinking. Cold through next week, with the “warmest” days being Wednesday (mostly 40s) and Friday (ditto).

As for precipitation, just flurries early this evening in El Paso County, otherwise partly cloudy with winds slackening off. Sunday’s storm is a creampuff. It is collapsing over the mountains of California, Nevada and Utah, and while 3-6″ should be seen in the Sangres, Wets, San Juans…here on the Front Range…just flurries Sunday PM and night, lingering into much of Monday. But, with very little or no accumulation.

Even yesterday’s snow chart, may be too high for Monument!
