Wednesday March 13 2019
The action has shifted to the western US where a strong storm is about to develop into a blizzard just east and north of Denver. This is one of the ‘bombogenesis’ events where the Low Pressure will drop more than 1 mb per hour in a 24 hour period. That creates a large wind machine. In March this taps into warm air in the south for an extended area of severe storms.
This type of storm will dominate news headlines for a few days, but will likely spin itself out, so by the time it reaches us there will be less energy. We may still get some thunder on Friday, but ahead of it we will see a warm up, only to be followed by another cool down with a dry weekend.
- Blizzard Warnings, Dense Fog, Flash Flooding across the north…
- High Wind Warnings across the southern plains states. Winds could reach hurricane force!

Afternoon High Temperatures
Just west of the mountains the temps will be warmer again… into the 60s.
Most of our region will be in the mid 60s… Colder by the water.
Look at the 70s in the mountains!
The good news is that this time window shrunk quite a bit. The chance for rain will mainly be with the cold front on Friday… But may have some rumbles of thunder and strong winds.
The weekend will be dry following this.
Snow Early Next Week?
This is not on all models and NOT the big storm some of you may have seen on social media. This is a clipper type system that could bring a quick few hours of snow Monday morning. It’s too early to speculate about stickage.
If we do have that chance of snow on Monday morning, it will come at the tom of day when temperatures are in the 20s. I’ve highlighted that below. It is March and as we will see today, we can get a big jump to the 40s easily after a cold start.
