Juicy CO Storm System 4/25-4/26; 2nd Storm 4/27-4/28

Tomer’s Take: A storm systems tracks through WY/UT and into CO/NM 4/25-4/26. It develops into an ABQ low pressure. This is a wetter storm systems with promise of deep upslope favoring the Front Range, Foothills, Palmer Divide, Colorado Springs, Pikes Peak, Wet Mountains, and Southern Colorado. In the Mountains, this setup favors the Divide-East with less precipitation west of the Divide.

A second fast-moving cold front hits WY and CO 4/27-4/28 with additional snow accumulation.
