Colorado Powder Forecast for week of Nov. 19
- Huge system moving into the state over the holiday week
- 2-4 feet in the San Juans
- 1-3 feet in central mountains
I wish there was a hurricane-like scale for snowstorms (Category 1, 2, etc) because the storm heading for Colorado from Saturday night through Wednesday would almost certainly be rated a 4 or a 5 (out of 5).
This “big storm” has all the right ingredients to make Thanksgiving week one to remember. Tons of moisture (5 FEET could fall in Tahoe as the storm moves toward Colorado), slow movement (a few days of snow is better than one), and colder air following warmer air which will keep the fluffy stuff on top while a good, dense base is built underneath.
But enough with the weather-speak…how about some numbers? You got it. Do you like the sound of 2-4 FEET in the San Juans? Or 1-3 FEET in the central mountains around Crested Butte and Aspen? Mmm…that’s yummy. And other areas of the state should see deep snow as well, just in time for opening day at many resorts.
