|Patches of reasonably deep lying snow over the high plains of CO and WY|
Fun fact of the day: We're currently higher than Ben Nevis - Cheyenne is ~1,800m ASL, Ben Nevis being a mere 1,344m.
Weather-wise, each day has produced numerous high-based showers, but nothing spectacular, due to a lot of cool, dry air at the surface. It is hoped that as the upper pattern changes over the weekend, the upper ridge will shift a little further east allowing the mean flow to back to the southwest, advecting warmer and ultimately more moist air across the northern Plains. This coupled with any shortwaves in westerly flow aloft could allow isolated severe storms to develop across western Nebraska/eastern Wyoming/South Dakota on Sunday afternoon and evening. It looks like a case of waiting patiently for the cap to be eroded locally...
