Following Sunday night snowfall that brought up to seven inches of accumulation to the central and northern mountains, additional waves of powder will likely hit in upcoming days.
According to Joel Gratz of OpenSnow.com, a first wave of snow is expected to land on Tuesday, dropping up to half a foot across most northern and central mountains, as well as in part of the San Juan range. Though Wednesday and Thursday are expected to be dry, a weak storm in the northern mountains on Friday is expected to be followed by a stronger storm on Saturday that's likely to hit all mountains. Additional storms are expected to hit the following week, as well. (See storm specifics, mapping, and resort-specific info in the full OpenSnow report here).
The National Weather Service has published a similar forecast, calling for light snow on Tuesday with winds up to 50 miles per hour on the Eastern Plains and another round of snow potential in the mountains on Friday and Saturday. During this time, visibility may be limited by blowing snow.
It's also worth noting that while most of the state isn't expected to get much snow in the upcoming Tuesday storm, a 'winter weather advisory' has been issued in the area of Rabbit Ears Pass, near Steamboat Springs, from Monday night into early Tuesday evening. The advisory calls for a chance of 5 to 10 inches of snow and winds up to 40 miles per hour. Icy and snowy travel conditions are expected to impact travel, as well as reduced visibility due to blowing snow.
A similar advisory has been issued in the area of the Elkhead and Park mountains, calling for up to 8 inches of snow through Tuesday at 5 PM in this area.
