SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Sunday, January 31, 2016

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 35 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: The cold front yesterday behaved fairly well, and has now shifted down near I-70. The next system is moving into California and will result in a strong low pressure near Las Vegas and it'll track over toward southeast Colorado over the next 24 to 36 hours. As the moisture spreads in from the south later this afternoon and evening, we should see some snow develop, but the…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Saturday, January 30, 2016

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 34 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: Nice snowfall with the increase in moisture overnight and now we need to wait for the front to move across the area and that'll be late this morning or early afternoon. I expect the snowfall to be heavy this afternoon and evening, then taper off to snow showers later tonight and tomorrow morning. In fact, as the front pushes south of us, we could see some breaks during the…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Friday, January 29, 2016

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 33 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

A fast moving system will bring a little light snow early this morning, but should out of the area fairly rapidly, and accumulations upstream have been about an inch. Moisture increases later tonight and tomorrow with the cold front moving southeastward during the morning and afternoon bringing a period of moderate to heavy snow and ushering in a much colder air mass.…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Thursday, January 28, 2016

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 32 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

A fairly difficult forecast! The satellite images are showing the first part of the system that will have an impact on the area is over the Pacific Northwest. We'll have a nice day today, but a little increase in cloudiness later tonight and tomorrow with a chance of light snow showers, possibly mixed with rain at the base increasing later tomorrow night and into…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Wednesday, January 27, 2016

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 31 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

A couple of fairly quiet weather days, but with a little more cloudiness (mainly high clouds), then an increase in moisture with a chance of showers Friday night, then cooler with snow likely on Saturday. The models are all over the place with the handling of the system moving in from the Pacific, and not really a fan of the GFS or even the Euro, but should see a cold…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 30 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

Higher pressure will be strengthening over the area over the next couple of days, but a fairly strong low pressure will be impacting the region from later Friday night through Sunday, possibly Monday. The Euro model is faster in moving the system through the area, but they both have a similar trend. The initial moisture moving into the area later Friday night and early…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Monday, January 25, 2016

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 29 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

We'll continue to see some snow or snow showers this morning, and into the afternoon. The models keep humidity values high through the overnight periods, but the wind shifts to more of a westerly component. I'll keep the snow going a little longer across the upper part of the mountain. A very weak system passes from north to south tomorrow, and I'll put some clouds in…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Sunday, January 24, 2016

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 29 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: The next system has spread snow into northwester Colorado, and will move into our area later this morning and increase through the afternoon and evening. The models continue with the idea of a northwest flow, but a weakening flow late tonight and tomorrow. The speeds forecasted at 700 mb are 5 knots tomorrow morning, so with the high humidity, we'll see clouds and…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Saturday, January 23, 2016

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 28 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: The next system has moved into California and will continue eastward bringing snow to us tomorrow and snow showers on Monday. It does have some support for northwest winds, but these are a little lighter than I like to see. Once this system exits the area, high pressure will move into the area Tuesday through the end of the week, but another storm system next…

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 27 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

Another awesome day on the mountain, and if we can cope with some cloudiness, both today and tomorrow are nice weather days. The next system will move into the area on Sunday bringing another period of snow, and with a west- northwest wind flow, should be a good snow producing system. Once that system exits the area, we'll wait for the next one to show up the following…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Thursday, January 21, 2016

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 26 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

Another good snow producing system, and I'm guessing the ski conditions are awesome! The moisture at 700 mb decreases this morning and the flow turns more westerly, so should see the snow end and even some breaks through the afternoon. We should have nice weather tomorrow and Saturday with the next system moving into the area really late Saturday night and Sunday.…

Howelsen Hill slip, sliding away

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 25 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

Good morning! There are two pieces to this system with the first moving across the area now, and will bring an inch or two through the morning. The second is the upper level portion of the system and will move southeastward across us this afternoon and evening bringing a burst of heavier snow. I hit this afternoon and evening harder with better dynamics and a northwest…
