If you read the previous blog posting on the 27th (read it by clicking here) then you are aware that I retired from my position with the National Weather Service at the end of 2022. I have since formed my weather consulting company - Hutton Weather Futures, LLC and will be providing a more specific form of weather outlooks that are similar to what you may have read in this blog. It is a subscription-based opportunity for you to receive valuable insight into what can be expected weather-wise far into extended periods to help in your business needs. Access to the data is through a weekly (or as needed in between a weekly report) that will be emailed to you. The pricing structure is stated on my company's website, and that is:
I hope you will consider the opportunity to receive these reports that will be delivered on a consistent basis (with occasional updates). I will likely "occasionally" post here on this blog site but without as much detail as I hope to provide with the subscription-based service.
In that previous blog posting on the 27th, I had mentioned three potential systems that could benefit much of the western high plains. It was unclear on the track of number 2 and 3. The first system behaved as expected with the biggest impacts being across northeast Colorado and far northwest Kansas and into Nebraska. Amounts for much of southwest Kansas were very light in most areas, but anything helps settling the dust, I guess.
System number 2 that is expected this Friday evening and into Saturday will be rather compact, but the eventual track will benefit much of the area that was missed by system number 1. I would not be surprised to see six-inch snow amounts at some locations across western Kansas but especially into southeast Colorado. Unfortunately, there will be a sharp gradient on the south side of the snow area and those south of the gradient will not get much, if at all. The location of the snow shield will not be known until the event starts. Moisture content in the snow will be on the wetter side!
System number 3 will impact the region late Sunday into Monday. The eventual track could be making it an Oklahoma storm, but that track is highly suspect.
