Forecast Discussion:

Salaam Alaykum from Marrakech Morocco, where although not Colorado snow, there has been enough recent snowfall in the Atlas Mountains to reopen Oukaimeden Ski Area.  It’s not Colorado, but it’s fun to make turns in Africa.  My apologies for the delayed forecast, and the brief forecast, but it’s tricky finding time while overseas.

Light snow this week (one to four inches additional), and as always the most snow near the divide.  There’s a break in the snow this weekend.  Snow restarts early next week, with the European model showing significant snow (10+ inches at the Continental Divide, with some snow all the way down to the front range).  The American model shows just an inch, and the Canadian model splits the difference.  Let’s keep our fingers’ crossed that the European Model is right.

Looking back, Eldora reported 3” of snow on Friday, which was slightly above the most optimistic model.
