Snow, cold in store during next 36 hours
March 26, 2010 —
Another round of snow has pushed its way in the Western Slope as ample moisture and favorable winds will indeed drop some much needed snow in the high country.
There will be colder temps for the next 36 hours as a cold front moves in from the northwest, sticking around until mid-day Saturday, March 27. We will see most of the snow fall during the day Friday, March 26, as this system will quickly drop south overnight Friday night into Saturday.
Needless to say, Saturday should be a good day to ski as this storm is packing a punch for our area. On-mountain temps for Saturday will start out in the low 20s and rise into the 30s as the day moves on.
Northwest winds will gust into the 35 mph range with steady winds in the 15-20 mph range overnight Friday.
Look for 3-6 inches for the morning snow report at both Vail and The Beav' and sunny skies by late afternoon Saturday.
Sunday March, 28 through Tuesday March, 30 temps will again warm ahead of another stronger Pacific storm moving in late Wednesday March 31. We'll have more of an idea come Tuesday, but for now enjoy another typical spring weekend in the Rockies.
