Snow possible in Colorado’s mountains this weekend and next week

A dip in the jet stream could bring snow to Colorado’s mountains this weekend and next week (10/9-10/15). Amounts this weekend appear on the lighter side, but next week they could be a touch higher.

Pressure pattern at about 18,000ft valid on 10/9/2021. Lower pressures in blue, higher in red.

This more active pattern would also benefit the higher mountains of Wyoming, Utah, Montana, British Columbia, and Alberta. Here’s a specific look at Berthoud Pass in Colorado. Totals are not big but it’s something. This is a normal progression for October.
