...Another spring storm system to bring rain and snow to the
region through the weekend...

The next in a series of upper level storm systems is expected to
bring another round of heavy mountain snow and widespread moderate
to heavy rainfall to the region. The heaviest precipitation is
expected Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon.

Travel will likely become hazardous in the mountains early Friday
morning, through Saturday morning. Travel along Interstate 25
across Monument Hill and Raton Mesa may also become difficult,
especially late Friday evening into Saturday afternoon.

The heaviest snowfall is expected over the Eastern Mountains, into
the Palmer Divide. Widespread heavy rainfall is forecast across
the Eastern Plains where 1 to 2 inches of liquid rainfall are
possible. How much snow falls over the lower elevations will
depend highly on the rain snow line. This storm appears to be
slightly colder than the previous storms, with snow expected down
to 5000 feet. This would include snowfall by Saturday morning for
Colorado Springs.

A few thunderstorms are possible Friday afternoon along a boundary
that is forecast to develop from Colorado Springs, southeast to
near Springfield. Modest instability and shear will likely keep
storms from becoming severe, however, small hail and gusty winds
may be possible.

Although the computer models are in good agreement that a storm
will track east over New Mexico, there is still uncertainty on the
storms exact track. Slight deviations in the storm track could
bring a shift in who sees the greatest impacts.

Please stay tuned for further updates.
