Good for you! That's a lot of snow for your area.
We only got an inch but it is glittery and sparkly and beautiful.

Snow is always pretty! This is one of the rare storms where Pueblo gets hit and we get more snow then the front range and mountains. Its like Pavlov's experiment. I know most of the storms are going to miss Pueblo but every once in a while we get hit and since I don't know which one every time snow is forecasted I get excited thinking this could be the storm Pueblo gets 5-10 inches or more of snow...... This just happen to be that storm.

The next storm will hit Colorado tonight bringing watches and warnings, however, this is a typical storm for Pueblo and as such no watch or warning has been issued.

I predict the city of Pueblo and immediate suburbs will see 3-6 inches of snow and the suburbs south and west of town will see more. The cool thing, at lest from my perspective, is I have 10 inches of snow so this should bring the total over 1 feet and I like it when I have over a foot of snow at my house.

Depending on when the snow starts tonight I might post a video or wait till tomorrow.

Here is the official forecast for Pueblo from the NWS:

Tonight: Snow likely, mainly after 11pm. Cloudy, with a low around 16. North northwest wind between 5 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

Thursday: Snow likely. Cloudy, with a high near 24. North northeast wind between 10 and 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.

Thursday Night: A 20 percent chance of snow before 11pm. Mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly clear, with a low around -2. Wind chill values between -5 and -10. Northwest wind around 5 mph.

Talking Winter weather advisory

There is a update to the approaching storm! The funny thing is they are now saying the amounts will be what I predicted. As of now I will increase my prediction of 3-6 inches of snow in the city of Pueblo and immediate suburbs like Pueblo West to 4-8 inches because certain areas like the south west side of town (where I live) tend to get more snow and can be on the upper end of what they predict. I continue to think the suburbs of Beulah, Rye, Colorado City and Hatchet Ranch will get more snow as they usually do.

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
PUEBLO CO 235 PM MST WED DEC 21 2011

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN PUEBLO HAS ISSUED A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR SNOW
...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 8 PM THIS EVENING TO 4 PM MST THURSDAY.

* LOCATION...SOUTHERN EL PASO COUNTY...PUEBLO COUNTY AND EASTERN FREMONT COUNTY.

* CAUSE AND TIMING...A WINTER STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE ACROSS THE ROCKIES TONIGHT AND THURSDAY...SENDING A COLD FRONT THROUGH THE EASTERN PLAINS. THIS WILL PRODUCE LIGHT TO MODERATE SNOW ACROSS THE REGION.

* SNOW ACCUMULATION...ACCUMULATIONS OF 3 TO 6 INCHES WILL OCCUR ACROSS THE REGION. LOCALLY HEAVIER AMOUNTS ARE POSSIBLE.

* WIND...NORTHEAST WINDS 10 TO 20 MPH.

* IMPACT...TRAVEL WILL BECOME HAZARDOUS DUE TO SNOW PACKED ROADS. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO TRAVEL IN THE ADVISORY AREA DURING THE TIME OF THE ADVISORY...LISTEN TO THE LATEST WEATHER FORECAST AND CONSIDER TRAVELING AT ANOTHER TIME OR BY ANOTHER ROUTE.

This is the forecast map from the NWS in Pueblo:



I find this fascinating. If the low pressure sets up over Albuquerque then Pueblo will get more then 4-8 inches of snow. I will keep my eye on it as I would love another major blizzard.

Nice pictures!

Tonight as my friends and I were coming home from the movie a guy spun out on I-25 so we stopped to help. While there I decided to make a quick video of the interstate to show how icy it is.

So far I would say we have about 3 new inches of snow in the city and its coming down steady. I measured the snow in my back yard and with the 2 storms I have 11 inches of snow currently on the ground.
