So jealous. I was actually planning to go to A Basin on Sunday because I figured the snow would be lighter, but Vail Pass closed literally right as I was about to head east through it. I might just have to take Friday off to do a powder day if the forecast snow pans out.

I was at Winter Park on Sunday on a whim last minute. I'm sure they did get 17 or whatever inches, but it kind of rained on top of that so there was a crust on top and it was heavy. What really peaved me was they had the lifts for the top half of the mountain shut down. That's where the good snow would have been, and the best runs are all there.

I was pretty disappointed. They had 4 lifts down on one of the best snow days. This isn't the only time they've had those top ones shut down either.

Nasty winds around 4 o'clock this morning in the Fruita/Loma area, blowing steady around 15-20 m.p.h. and the last few hours are gusting to 40 m.p.h. Skies are dark-but no moisture. And we need moisture. We'll see what happens on the Grand Mesa tonight.

Our unseasonably warm weather comes to an end today as a strong cold front moves through the region. Winds will become gusty at times across the region ahead of the front today, especially in valley locations where Wind Advisories are currently in effect through 8 PM tonight. Red Flag Warnings are in effect for low elevations of southwestern Colorado today due to a combination between gusty winds and dry conditions leading to increased fire danger. Scattered showers will develop ahead of the cold front beginning in the early afternoon today, but most precipitation will develop overnight tonight as the front moves through the region. Northerly winds behind the front will continue to induce snow showers for the northern and central Colorado mountains through Friday evening. Cloudy skies and northerly winds will bring unseasonable cool temperatures across the region on Friday with many locations having daytime highs 10 to 20 degrees below normal. Temperatures Friday night will drop into the 20s across many valley locations. However, temperatures will rebound to normal levels over the weekend as high pressure moves into the region.
