Rockies snowstorm

It is not unusual for significant accumulating snow to fall this time of year across the Rocky Mountain States; especially, on the back end of a winter that features an El Nino event in the tropical Pacific. A strong upper-level wave will drop southward from the Pacific Northwest during the next 24 hours and then meander around the southwestern states for several days. This slow-movement will help to result in a long-lasting snow event that is likely to result in significant snow for much of the Four Corners region and this will include the Denver metro region where 8-14 inches can fall between later this evening and early Friday morning. The precipitation in Denver will start out as rain later today and then transition to all snow by later this evening and continue heavy at times in the overnight hours and through the day on Thursday. Winds will become an increasing factor as well with gusts from late tonight through tomorrow at 30+ mph leading to blowing snow. The strengthening northeasterly winds that develop will allow for a stronger, deeper, and rather sustained upslope flow adding to the threat of heavy snow. The snow is likely to be of the heavy, wet texture which unfortunately, raises the possibility of some power outages. Across the foothills, as much as 2 or 3 feet of snow is likely to accumulate during this major winter storm event.
