As I sit by the beach sipping a Pina Colada in Belize, I apologize for my absence but not really as my wife and I celebrate our anniversary in a beautiful place. So I will keep this brief, warm and dry weather through Monday, then a upper trough will move down over CO on Tuesday and bring a chance for some precip. Latest models suggest mostly light Previn amounts for CO, with heaviest precip over southern CO. Foothills should see some snow above 6000 ft during the day on Tuesday into Tuesday night as snow level lowers to near 4000 ft. For amounts, should see somewhere around 2-5 inches locally, with not much accumulation below 6000 ft.

For the rest of the week, temps closer to average Wednesday through Friday with some mountain snow possible but dry elsewhere. Temps rise for the weekend under mostly sunny skies. Back this week with a more detailed forecast.

Now sitting in the pool sipping slushy rum drinks, but wondering what we come home to on Tuesday. Latest models now in good agreement on more snow for our foothills. Precip should start late morning with snow level 7000-8000 ft and precip will intensify through the afternoon and evening hours as snow level gradually lowers to near 4000-5000 ft by midnight. Snow will begin to taper off after midnight but some light snow could persist through Wednesday morning. Models suggest 6-12 inches will be possible from the Divide east into the foothills, then lesser amounts of 1-4 inches below 6000 ft farther east along the Urban Corridor. With recent warm temps roads should remain mostly wet during the day on Tuesday but may become snow and ice covered by Tuesday late afternoon and evening, so the late Tuesday commute could have some slick driving conditions, with conditions worsening Tuesday night ( as I return from Belize). Crews should have roads in decent shape Wednesday morning but still snow and ice covered roads so expec a slower commute.

Rest of the week looks mostl dry locally as temps warm nicely Friday into Sunday.
