March heading out like a (snow) lion in the Vail Valley
March 29, 2009 —
A short weekend of spring-like weather will be followed by colder air and active weather leading into the first week of April.
Tonight (Sunday, March 29) we will see a few cold fronts move through the northern and central mountains of Colorado. Strong winds will provide orographic lift, giving areas like Steamboat, Vail, Beaver Creek, and Aspen a chance for some good snowfall.
Moderate to heavy bands of snowfall will move through our area late Sunday and early Monday, with snow totals for the Monday report ranging from 4 to 8 inches.
Temps will be much colder as we will not see the mercury rise above 20 degrees on the mountain.
This system moves out by Monday evening, leading us into a calm Tuesday with another system moves in Wednesday, April 1(no fooling).
The first week of April looks active, as we see storms every other day or so, and models show that the first part of the month could be very active.
We will watch. In the meantime, we have 21 days until the end of the season, so get out and enjoy the last remaining days of the '09 season.
