Vail Valley has shot at lingering showers, but little accumulation expected
February 26, 2010 —
El Niņo (or El Noņo for the northern mountains) will bring another shot of snow for the San Juans and Front Range for the last weekend of February.
Another low pressure system will move into Colorado by Saturday, Feb. 27, dropping more snow on the southwest ski resorts (5-10 inches) and leaving the central and northern mountains fairly dry.
The Vail Valley has a shot at some lingering showers, but little accumulation is expected. Temps will remain warm, as on-mountain highs will be in the mid 20s with overnight lows in the high teens. Southwest winds will bring in these mild temps with any moisture staying south of Aspen.
Partly cloudy skies will dominate for the next five days as we see another shot of snow late next week (March 3-5).
For now, back to the cycle of clearing driveways and washing cars, as Denver and the Front Range will likely see more snow than most resorts in the north.
