Rabbit Ears: Bruce’s
Clouds are marching into the Northern and Central Mountains Thursday afternoon as the jet stream fires shortwave disturbances towards northern Colorado. Snow showers have started, and will pick up in intensity this evening. Some locations in the northern Sawatch, Gore, and Front Ranges are well positioned to pick up 6 or more inches of snow overnight. Expect a few inches of snow over the rest of the Central and Northern Mountains. Light, scattered snow showers will linger through Friday and Friday night, winding down by Saturday morning. Winds remain strong and gusty until Saturday, when the jet stream shifts away from us. The Southern Mountains miss out on the snow and the strongest of winds.
