Sunny and 50 degrees now in Delta. HOPEFULLY we will get a lot of snow which is forecast for this weekend here, but I'm not holding my breath.

The snow stacks up at 5500 ft. The Bookcliffs got it good. So did Glade Park above the monument, in fact the road got shut down for a time due to poor visibility! And the wind WAS blowing a steady 25 mph at my place for a couple hours. No snow though, just a freezing rain with slick roads. I'm at 4500 ft.

That system fortunately dumped some much needed snow out of this system. The Grand Mesa received up to a foot of snow in spots.

KREX in Grand Junction reported this morning that early yesterday Vail Pass was shut down for over an hour for avalanche control. CDOT crews closed both sides of the road at mile marker 186 on the pass and was necessary to prevent potential avalanche danger to motorists.

Talking Central Plains, Eastern Colorado Snowstorm on the Way

It has been a while since Pueblo had a snow storm but a storm is on the way and if it sets up right could give eastern Colorado a major blizzard. The reason is the low pressure seems to be traveling over central New Mexico and that would mean a classic Albuquerque low which would give Pueblo a foot or more of snow. That is what happened in December when I had over 16 inches of snow at my house with the two storms. I am keeping my fingers crossed as we need the snow plus a blizzard is always fun!

This is from Accuweather.com:

A storm dropping southeastward will target the central Plains late this week, producing a swath of heavy snow, stiff winds and poor travel conditions.

For now, Colorado Springs, Denver and Pueblo in Colorado, Grand Island and McCook in Nebraska and Goodland in Kansas appear to be in the heart of the storm's snow area.

I might not share Josseppie's enthusiasm regarding blizzards! lol But there's no denying the fact that the state is behind in precipitation total for the winter season, in fact way behind! The Grand Junction area is looking at a 40% chance of precip out of this front but at last word was that two inches would be the max. We'll see what this system brings to the high country, and especially to the San Luis valley area that is really hurting here for moisture.

I'm hoping that it will fall as rain in the valley with lots of snow in the high country!
