Colorado Weather: In the warm before the storm, a peek into the MJO
After a chilly, windy and snowy weekend across the state of Colorado, the work week has landed us in a pretty good spot. Monday featured a bit of wind and leftover snow in the mountains, Tuesday is looking great with widespread 50s and 60s along the Front Range, and Wednesday should be one of the warmest days of the week with most getting into the 60s along and east of I-25. Clearly we're going to be working with stuff well above normal the next few days. The good news is that we won't have muc
Colorado weather: More mountain snow and Front Range wind on Sunday
It was a snowy Saturday over the continental divide, with strong winds in the mountains, passes and along the front range. Here's a look at some of the gusts across the state today: Snow stakes looking good (Imagery from 5:30pm) Many locations already seeing 5-10" of fresh powder. For some resorts, this event is just getting started with another 10-16"+ possible in the central and northern mountains. Keystone Snow Stake [

Colorado mountain snow returns, colder weather for the Front Range
Our slow start to the snowy-season continues statewide across Colorado. We're going to attempt to help out the slope this weekend as several waves of energy move across the state. Many of the ski resorts could see up to a foot or more of snow by Sunday night. Slow start to the season for Western U.S. snowpack, will that change in December?It hasn’t been a great start to the s

Colorado weather: Saturday snow exits, chilly temps linger on Sunday
So, for the most part, the forecast held with most folks down low managing 1-4", and the northern foothills and Front Range saw anywhere between 5-10". Daniel from Fort Collins measured close to double digit snow around lunch time on Saturday. > Close to 10 inches on the chair here in the Red Fox Meadows area. Lovely fluffy snow. #cowx #fortcollins @NWSBoulder

Colorado weather: Waiting for the pattern change, Thanksgiving week outlook
It's kind of like when you have trouble getting the engine started. We've had some flashes of life here and there with the weather, but outside of that, a LOT of downtime. We discussed in our last SOTA post that we're starting to shed into a pattern change. It's still looking like we'll see a decent storm for the mountains starting Sunday and lasting into Monday. Model data the past few days has had some trouble pinning down the forecast for the front range and lower elevations. The big picture

To start the week, more of the same... changes by Wednesday All has been relatively quiet along the front range since last weekend's snowstorm . Other than beautiful sunrises and beautiful sunsets due to a strong jet stream overhead, we haven't had a whole lot to talk about.

Winter's coming: Colorado cold and snow this weekend
About a week and a half ago, we posted about a possible active end to October in our State of the Atmosphere post. Coming just in time, we have a blast of winter weather on the way this weekend. Now, we're not going full-blown bomb cyclone with this thing, but much colder air and some accumulating snowfall is all on the table.

Colorado weather: Warmth fades soon, update on Halloween weekend storm
Denver's 86-degree Friday shattered the previous record of 83°F set back on Oct 20, 1950. It was also the 2nd-latest recorded 86-degree reading since record-keeping began for the Mile High City! Safe to say it was way hotter than normal. This weekend has featured some slightly cooler temps, back into the 70s for most along the Urban Corridor. We'll try to get back to 80°F in Metro Denver on Monday before a cold front knocks us down into the 60s and 70s Tuesday. That will be the first step int

Quiet for now, Halloween storm next week?
In our State of the Atmosphere post on Monday we outlined warm and dry weather holding tight this week. We're still in the midst of a dominating ridge of high pressure, with nothing more than some brief wobbles from 80s to 70s through the weekend and into Monday. For Friday, we're looking to see one of our warmest days over the next 7. The forecast of 84 puts Denver a whopping 19 degrees above normal fo

The State of the Atmosphere: Monday, October 16, 2023
There's been some weather here and there, but overall, our transition to Fall across Colorado has been... lackluster to say the least. We've been warm and dry. That's largely been a product of the summer ridge over The Rockies refusing to quit. Data on temperature and moisture across Colorado in the short stint of Fall thus far: With much of the state running much drier than average: Most of the Urban Corridor and much of the mountains (including major ski resorts) are dealing with below av
