Cloudy skies in Vail for SupernBowl weekend will produce moderate snowfall


Cloudy skies in Vail for SupernBowl weekend will produce moderate snowfall

By Reid Griebling

February 5, 2010 —  Look for another shot of snow over Super Bowl weekend in the mountains of Colorado.

A sweeping low pressure system will bring wintry weather to the Western Slope of Colorado beginning Friday afternoon (Feb. 5) and lasting into Saturday February 6th.

This next storm will drop most of the moisture in the San Juan's where up to a foot is possible for areas like Telluride, Silverton, and Wolf Creek.

Here in the Vail Valley cloudy skies will dominate throughout the weekend with intermittent snow showers. Some of these showers could produce moderate snowfall, not enough to make a powder day, but enough to soften the snow.

Temps will be seasonal as on mountain highs will be in the low 20's with overnight lows in the teens. Winds will gust into the 20 mph range over ridge tops but should be mild everywhere else.

Look for snow totals Saturday morning (Feb. 6) to be in the 2-4 inch range with Beaver Creek and Blue Sky Basin favored.

Overall, another below average storm for the central and northern Rockies as the jet stream is still split, leaving our area fairly dry.

Enjoy the Big Game!!
