Marty’s Sunday Morning Forecast – Scattered Rain/Snow Showers – 5/22/2022

Overview:  We're tracking several days of chilly air and areas of rain and snow!

Today:  Light rain and snow showers should wind down this morning, then more clouds than sun the rest of the day with occasional rain and snow showers becoming more likely again over and near the mountains during the afternoon. Where snow falls over the mountains we don't expect additional accumulations of snow to be widespread or significant, but a quick inch or two on cooler surfaces appears possible up high. High temperatures over and near the mountains are only expected to reach the 40s and 50s. Showers over the plains are likely to be quite isolated and the sun may peek out a bit more often than for areas farther west with high temperatures in the 60s. The San Luis Valley should again be warmer with high temperatures in the 60s and a potentially gusty southwesterly wind.

Tonight:  Scattered rain and snow showers should wind down this evening, then partly to mostly cloudy with low temperatures in the 30s and 40s.

Extended:  Monday will be cool with scattered rain and snow showers developing again during the afternoon, but snow should be confined to mountain areas with only light accumulations of snow expected. Another storm will approach the area Monday night and Tuesday and could increase the coverage of precipitation again for some areas. We do expect more snow could fall over the higher terrain on Tuesday, but the snowfall elevations should be significantly higher. Scattered showers may linger into early Wednesday morning, but as the upper-level storm moves farther east we should gradually dry out. The rest of the week looks much warmer with increasing wind on Friday.
