Holy Smokes!!

WET BULB ZERO
HEIGHTS OFF OF THE FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOW SNOW STARTING OVER THE
PLAINS ABOVE 5000 FEET FROM THURSDAY MID AFTERNOON TO EARLY
EVENING. THE FOOTHILLS APPEAR COLD ENOUGH TO BE SNOWING ALL DAY
THURSDAY...HOWEVER THE EASTERLY UPSLOPE DOESN'T GET INTO THESE AREAS
UNTIL THURSDAY EVENING. ON THE OTHER HAND...THE QPF GRIDS SHOW SNOW
OVER MOST OF THE PLAINS ALL DAY THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY EVENING. BY
06Z FRIDAY NIGHT...THE ETA MODEL RUN SNOW ACCUMULATION GRID SHOWS 20
PLUS INCHES OF SNOW FOR MUCH OVER THE DENVER METRO AREA
AND THE
PALMER RIDGE. THE SAME PRODUCT AND TIME FRAME FROM THE AVN SHOWS
SIMILAR VALUES...BUT GOES UP TO 30 INCHES FOR THE PALMER RIDGE. I
WILL LEAN MORE ON THE SOUNDINGS AND INTRODUCE SNOW LATER
THURSDAY/THURSDAY EVENING FOR THE PLAINS.
