Mar 27th, 2016 Weather Conditions

Wednesday’s storm fooled everyone by coming farther south than expected.
This was initially a wind and dust event,but then developed enough orographics to put 15″ on Telluride.

This weekend’s storm is behaving more like my expected Wed. forecast.

Today we had clear skies in the morning with warming temps, then a cloud shield capping temps as the next system squashes the great basin high.

This will start as a NW system but rapidly develop SW flow, favoring the San Juans.
By tonight into Mon. snowfall will develop at 8,000′ and up, dropping to valley floors by morning, as temps drop.
This system will linger into Tuesday on back flow, with unsettled frontal passage, intermittently continuing through the rest of the week.
Spring time in the Rockies.
