Double header snowstorms predicted to hit Colorado this weekend

According to our friend Joel Gratz over at, Colorado has got a pretty sweet layer of snow coming its way.

Two storms are expected to move in this weekend, with a smaller, appetizer of a storm coming in on Friday night, and a larger, main course style snow-dropping bad boy moving in for Saturday night. A few inches are expected to accumulate in the southern San Juans and around central CO — Monarch, Crested Butte and Aspen, specifically — and the San Juans with around one foot of snow in its wake. Steamboat is predicted to receive 6-8 inches, though this could push into double-digits depending on how the storm pans out. Overall, the entire state of Colorado is expected to receive substantial snowfall, and with temps dropping down to zero over the weekend, that snowfall will be sticking around for a while.

Though the storm is expected to calm down Saturday morning, the afternoon will bring in round two, and the heaviest snow is predicted to fall sometime between midnight to sunrise on Sunday morning.

For northern Colorado along and north of I-70, Beaver Creek and Steamboat should be on the look out for anywhere from 5-8+ inches on Saturday night. The storm is expected to clear out Sunday morning, with a pretty dry week to follow, so take advantage of this glorious snowfall while you can!

Moving on over to Utah, temps are dropping to the 20s and below, clouds are moving in, and a few inches are expected to grace the UT slopes over the weekend. Total accumulation by next Thursday could be substantial, with 1-2 feet of snow for northern areas and perhaps 5-10 inches further south for mountains in Utah and Colorado.
