San Juan Mountains Weather Forecast ~ Saturday, February 10, 2018 @ 08:00

A large scale low pressure trough will visit the San Juans later today on northwest flow. A cold front will also push in from the north later in the afternoon bringing a good shot of snow with high precip rates in a short period of time … 8 -12″ above TL and lesser amounts in the valleys.  The North San Juan (Uncompahgre Gorge) will be favored.

Seems like most of the activity will be between 3 to 10 pm today. Good storm dynamics but short lived and the storm will move southeast of our mountains by mid-day Sunday with clearing Sunday evening when another storm system will move into the area later Monday.

This storm which has three models agreeing will dive SW out of the Great Basin as a cutoff low stretches from California to the 4-corners.  These storm are very unpredictable (when/where/how much) so i’m not even guessing yet…
