... Possible heavy snow for the southern mountains on Friday and Saturday...
A moist and relatively warm weather system will bring a mixture of rain and snow to southeast Utah and southwest Colorado this Friday and Saturday. In the high country... this will mean snow with possible significant accumulations.
Regarding the snow level... it is unclear at this time where the snow level will be located. Early indicators suggest somewhere between 7500 to 8500 feet with significant snow accumulations above this level. Snowfall may exceed 12 inches over the mountain passes during the storm duration.
For the lower elevations... light rain is likely for the valleys of southwest Colorado on Friday. Rain amounts may range from a quarter to three quarters of an inch near the foothills of the San Juan Mountains... this includes the town of Durango. Pagosa Springs may have a mixture of rain and snow.
Be aware of winter weather returning this weekend over the higher elevations of the southern mountains. Heavy snow could fall and may impact travel over the passes.
