Also, the storm is moving quite fast according to the radar, and we are just catching the southwest part of it (the storm is moving Northeast). I wonder if the decent snow will be over by 4-5pm?
Forecasts still show intermittent snow throughout the night until tomorrow morning around 9, with the greatest overall coverage occurring around 7-9 p.m. tonight. Each hour accumulation is less than an inch, so totals would depend on your particular area - whether snow falls in more of those hours or less of them. Forecasts for my location were about 5 inches total and that's still reasonable given what has happened so far - 2-3 inches maybe.... (on top of 3-4 Saturday night)

The snow finally got a bit heavier earlier, but it is now slowing down as I suspected it would (the southwest corner of the storm is moving on). We might get heavy snow again later if the back of the storm swings around. If it doesn't, the heavy snow might be over. Right now, there is maybe 6 inches total out there (so about 3" of snow from this storm today, and 3" from the storm on Saturday). Unless the heavy snow comes back, we are still about 2-3" away from beating the other big storms I've seen in my 9 years of living here. I was hoping to see a foot of snow, but oh well!

I have seven inches so far downtown, still falling steadily. Happy there is no wind.

I've close to a foot of snow now on a table on the deck. Wind starting to kick up and will be even windier tonight and tomorrow as the storm moves east and wraps around.

Yesterday's snowfall in Colorado Springs set a precipitation record for the date; It looks like today's is also a precipitation record for the date (though not necessarily a snowfall record - that remains to be seen), more than double the previous record from 1913. This is a pretty wet snow for the time of year. Yes, not a record snowfall in comparison to all the big ones we've had, but significant accumulation for a late January/start of February system - enough for single date records.

It has really started coming down fast now, just measured at almost 9" in the downtown Divine Redeemer area. It reminds me of snows we used to get here!

Yes, I am starting to enjoy this storm more now! A lot more has developed south of us, which is causing this heavy snow. The accumulations are approaching the most I've seen yet.

Okay, went out to shovel again and I think we're at least a foot in Security. So probably 9 inches or so for today, since there was some already there. So I'd say entirely in line with forecasts and a decent accumulation! Here's some video of my yard after shoveling just now: https://youtu.be/S03SsIwzxWM
