I remember this all too well from my days on the HS track team in southeastern PA. Without fail, we'd get some nice warm days at the tail end of March or early April which turned track practice into a tanning session and thoughts of summer. Then along comes mid April with a wintry blast of cold temps, and often time some snow as well. And same as here in the Grand Valley, the fruit growers took a big hit to their promising crop just about every April. Having grown up with this phenomenon, I'm actually more surprised during the rare year when this does not ocurr.

Simply put. On average March is our snowiest month of the year and April our second.

I found out more what happened. The low pressure split into two low pressures and that took a lot of the engery out of the system then sent them into different directions.

Yeah, my guess is also that it was about measurable snow that fell, not that there was 13.1 inches accumulation - maybe in a shaded nook somewhere - not on the roads, sidewalks, etc.

Wink Sun and snow

It is snowing this very moment—and melting faster. The sun is also peaking out, as often the case today. So the somewhat strange experience of bright to shaded sun and snow at the same time.

Since Monday evening his storm has been off and on. The current temperature is something like 23º F. Nevertheless in measure the snow has been melting in places while elsewhere accumulating somewhat. Or, rather hard to gauge a total snowfall amount by. Still, the most pronounced storm of the season here was just after the equinox in March. This storm appears to no way match that in snowfall or overall precipitation.

A cool northwest flow will be over the forecast area through the end of the workweek. A disturbance will quickly pass through today bringing numerous snow showers to the mountains, with winter weather advisories in effect over parts of the northern Colorado mountains. Valley locations will see isolated to scattered rain/snow showers today with activity diminishing later this afternoon. Another weaker disturbance will bring a chance of northern mountain snow showers on Friday. An extended period of unsettled conditions is anticipated later Saturday through the middle of next week, with periods of rain/snow/windy weather across the north and a chance of showers/windy weather across the south. Temperatures will continue to moderate into this weekend returning to seasonal/above normal levels by Saturday, then a gradual downturn is expected once again early next week.

A fast moving disturbance brings scattered rain and snow showers across the western Colorado mountains, with a few light showers passing over the mountain valleys. On Saturday, winds will increase and become gusty ahead of a strong cold front. This cold front will bring more rain and snow showers to the western slope by Saturday night. This cold front will sit across Utah and Colorado for a few days next week and will bring more precipitation, colder temperatures and occasional gusty winds.

Strong gusty winds will develop in advance of a cold front this afternoon. The strongest wind gusts will occur over northwest Colorado with speeds upwards to 45 mph. For these reasons, a wind advisory is in effect for parts of northwest Colorado and a red flag warning is in effect for parts of west central Colorado. The cold front that moves into the region this evening brings snow to the high country with accumulations of 5 to 9 inches toward the divide. Showery and blustery weather will continue on Sunday and lasting into Wednesday has a bigger storm system develops over the Great Basin and shifts into Colorado. Heavy snow is possible across the northern and central mountains.
