A bit of wintry weather is expected to return to much of the Four Corners by early Saturday, but it likely won’t bring as much snow or cold as the Christmas weekend storm, according to the National Weather Service.
“It has been weakening the last couple of days,” said Megan Stackhouse, a meteorologist with the Weather Service in Grand Junction. “Right now, we’re not seeing anything super impressive in terms of cold or snow.”
The first disturbance is expected to hit Colorado’s southern border early Saturday and move out by Saturday night, she said.
Durango could see about a half-inch of snow and the San Juan Mountains could get 2 to 5 inches, possibly a bit more above 10,000 feet. Daytime temperatures are expected to be in the mid- to upper 30s.
The next best chance for snow will come on Monday and Tuesday, when a Pacific Northwest storm could bring colder and snowier weather. But Stackhouse said it’s a bit too early to say where that storm will track and how much snow it might drop. “It’s kind of a messy pattern,” she said of the two systems.
