There is already a update! The NWS in Pueblo has UPGRADED the winter weather advisory to a winter storm warning.

I am still going with my 5-10 inches of snow prediction for the city of Pueblo and imeadiate suburbs like Pueblo West more snow in the suburbs south and west of town. That includes, but not limited to, Beulah, Rye, Colorado City and Hatchet Ranch.

If you want to frolick in the snow Joss, you'd better start heading south and getting off on the 74 or 71 exit (Colorado City/Rye/San Isabel) or you can head east... La Junta, Las Animas, Lamar... or you can head south from there and check out Springfield, Kim, Walsh, Pritchet, Idalia, Branson, etc.

I doubt Pueblo will get much more than an inch or two... assuming it all doesn't blow away to Kansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico.

For my first snow video I actually made two videos that I put together. If the snow continues, in Pueblo you never know, I hope to make another video around 5 pm.

Here is the first one. Enjoy!

Yep, looking at the Weather Channel earlier I saw a big "L" on the state of the "Land Of Enchantment". And I know about those "Albuquerque Lows", trust me!

Yup..... I am now hearing as much as 12 inches of snow around the Pueblo area. The wet roads are now turning to ice and Highway 50 west is already at gridlock.

Here we go, another raging snow storm hitting the well known tropical Cancun banana belt in Pueblo and Canon City. I guess the banana crop has been frozen out again.
