Colorado Powder Forecast: A few little storms

March 10th, 2011 by

Colorado Powder Forecast for week of Mar. 10

    HIGHLIGHTS
  • Weak, fast-moving storms will be the rule
  • Most snow will fall in the northern mtns
  • Sun & warmth will separate each storm


The storm on Tuesday (March 8th) coated some mountains with 1-2 FEET of snow, but left others with just a few inches. That looks to be the last "big" storm that we'll see in Colorado for at least the next week.

The storm track will take on a due west-to-east path for the foreseeable future. This means many storms will hit Colorado, but they will be mostly weak, mostly affect the northern mountains, and mostly only hang out for about 12 hours at a time.

For the northern areas of the state that will see snow from these weak storms, conditions could remain pretty soft and light. However for southern areas, the strong March sun will begin to take a toll on the snow with south-facing slopes getting pretty baked during the day and crusting up at night.

Stay tuned to www.ColoradoPowderForecast.com for the details as the next few storms roll through.
