Snowcast: Series of storms heading to Colorado
When the snow forecaster is excited, you should be excited.
And I’m excited, so now it’s your turn!
While the state is currently at about 75 percent of average snowpack, I think we’ll be much closer to 100 percent by the end of February. An active storm track is in store for the next two weeks, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share the news.
Last weekend, a series of storms drove moisture into the San Juan mountains and snow totals pushed up to 48 inches at Wolf Creek Ski Area during a span of three days.
Adjacent areas in the San Juans also measured 2-3 feet, but other locations around the state weren’t as lucky, with about 4-8 inches falling.
Looking ahead, northern Colorado will see a series of weak storms Thursday and Friday, then a break over the weekend and then another storm for President’s Day.
None of these storms looks to be very powerful, but consistent snowfalls are a good thing.
A much stronger storm likely will bring midweek powder days to the state on Wednesday and Thursday, so go online and visit the website OpenSnow.com for more details over the next seven days.
And the best news of all is that additional storms are likely from late next week through that weekend.
Yes, the end of February will deliver the goods, and you should make sure your schedule is flexible so you can enjoy the powder!
