The metro area is going through a bit of a dry spell with it having been 25 days (and counting) since our last measurable precipitation. Relief may be on the way toward the middle of next week. The National Weather Service’s outlook says:
“The jet stream will switch from a westerly flow to a northerly flow Tuesday. This flow will persist into next weekend. This will bring much cooler temperatures and a good chance for snow. There is still quite a bit of uncertainty when the periods of snow will occur. Currently the best chance for snow will be Tuesday night and Wednesday.“
Of course forecasting a weather event like this four or five days away is pretty hard. Current indications show the storm arriving around midday Tuesday and hanging around through Wednesday morning. Computer models are saying less than 6″ of snow is expected across northeastern Colorado while the majority of the precipitation heads southeast onto the plains.
