Evening Rain, late evening snow for Wednesday, March 16th

Here we go again. Time for some more winter like weather. We will just get into what to expect for Wednesday.

1) Morning: Expect some clouds and cooler temperatures in the 30s.

2) Afternoon: Cold front from the Pacific Northwest moves through Colorado in the afternoon. Mountains will see snow. The foothills could start to see rain.

3) Evening commute:  We see rain as you are headed home. It will keep raining on and off into late into the evening when it becomes cold enough for the rain to turn into snow.

Thursday commute heads up: Could be slick!

What you need to know, currently.

People across Spain stepped outside to an orange sky and cars covered in dust early this week. The dust traveled all the way from the Sahara desert, brought over by strong jet stream winds.

The dust, combined with rains from storm Celia led to what people in Spain are describing as “raining mud”. The air quality across Spain reached “dangerous” levels today, March 15.

“It is causing views more typical of the planet Mars,” said Currently’s Madrid meteorologist, Emilio Rey. “The air quality was the worst on the entire planet this Wednesday, and the risk for the elderly, children, and people with respiratory problems is extreme.”

Climate change is making dust storms in the Sahara more intense, largely because of extended periods of drought.
