I would not interpret this to mean "a lot of upslope snow".... Strong upslope snow storms typically develop when we have a deep, slower moving, low pressure system propagating across the southern part of Colorado. Those systems can tap deep layers of moisture on the southeastern plains and funnel it up to the front range. This 3-month probability temperature outlook is simply guidance. It is, however, the layout of the colder air in the upper midwest that tells the story. Any arctic airmass that sends cold air south into Canada has the potential to perturb the cold air on the northern plains sending a pulse of cold air into NE Colorado
Don't want to stretch this too far, but its at least possible that cold weather flyers "may
" have more opportunities for cold front soaring at Lookout, than what might otherwise happen in a "normal" year.
