Well, that’s what the Weather Channel promises us weather-wise for the next 36 hours.
A significant upslope storm is headed towards Denver and the Front Range with the promise of some decent snow. Upslope flow (aka “orographic lifing”) implies air masses flowing towards higher ground, being forced to rise and hence cool, condense and generate precipitation – in this case, snow.
There could be some good winter photography opportunities Friday morning as things start to clear.
It feels like we haven’t really had much of a winter this year, despite December’s record cold, so this is something to look forward to.
