Big time winds through here just a bit ago. Looking at News11 weather, there's two low pressure systems at work here, one south of Salt Lake City (just left there early this morning) and the other in southeastern Idaho. Gonna be pretty blustery for a couple days. Rain for sure, probably no snow. The snow will stack up in the high country for sure.

I just saw that. I am not sure how the low pressures are going to track but I would say there is a chance it could develop into a classic Albuquerque low. That would make for a fun spring snow storm in Pueblo.

As I posted this looks like it could be a big storm. Already KOAA is reporting that Pueblo could get 8 inches of snow. If this sets up right I think that will be the low end. Upper 70s today a major storm tonorrow night. March in Colorado. I love it!

Unhappy No snow for Pueblo

Unfortunately the low pressure tracked to far south so Pueblo only got a dusting of snow that melted fast.

Maybe next time. I really hope Pueblo gets 1 maybe 2 large spring snow storms then I will be ready for summer.

I had to cancel my trip to CO this year (a work injury and too much debt) but I did schedule it in early June to avoid the pollen, which I find only in Colorado and Utah, and I thought it started in July/August. Good heavens. I am apparently allergic to anything that makes tumbleweeds- Russian thistle, sage, grease-something, you name it. I near died in Utah a few Julys ago, and no med would touch it. Very disappointed- I had hoped to spend summers out there some time in the future to escape the 100 percent-without-rain humidity here in the East. I'll bet you guys don't have to powerwash your houses because of mildew. It gets stickier here every year, not hotter. Any suggestions for allergy medications? I took, I think, Claritin and a Zyrtec and almost drove into a wall. The Claritin does nothing. Might my PCP give me a generic allergy shot? I sure don't want to go to some specialist and get the whole work-up thing, when I know it's "chenopods." (Does that include cottonwood or tamarisk?)

I don't know if Tamarisk is a chenopod, but I do know that it makes a great hiking stick. It's hard enough to rival the hardness of an eastern harwood tree. Russian Olive is also pretty hard, but not quite as hard as Tamarisk. Both Russian Olive and Tamarisk are looked upon as invasive species in these parts.

Let's keep our fingers crossed. Everyone I guess except me, has been so happy for the 70 degree sunny weather here lately. I may be in the minority, but a good rain and snow is really needed:

STRONG STORM SYSTEM WILL IMPACT EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO THIS WEEKEND THROUGH MONDAY... AN APPROACHING PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM WILL BRING STRONG AND GUSTY WINDS OF 30 TO 40 MPH TO THE VALLEYS OF EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO BY SATURDAY AFTERNOON. THE SYSTEM WILL ALSO PRODUCE WIND GUSTS UPWARDS OF 60 MPH OVER MOUNTAIN LOCATIONS. THESE STRONG WINDS WILL LIKELY PICK UP DUST AND REDUCE VISIBILITIES ACROSS EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO.
WARM TEMPERATURES AND PLENTY OF INSTABILITY WILL BE IN PLACE AHEAD OF THE FRONT WHICH WILL ALLOW THUNDERSTORMS TO FORM SUNDAY AS THE UNSTABLE AIR MASS AND COLD FRONT COLLIDE. MOUNTAIN SNOWS WILL ALSO INCREASE THROUGH THE DAY SUNDAY AS THE COLD FRONT REACHES EASTERN UTAH IN THE MORNING AND WESTERN COLORADO IN THE AFTERNOON. SNOW LEVELS WILL START AT 8000 TO 9000 FEET SUNDAY MORNING AND LOWER TO THE MOUNTAIN BASES OR AROUND 7500 FEET BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THE HEAVIEST SNOWFALL IS EXPECTED OVER THE SAN JUAN MOUNTAINS SUNDAY NIGHT. PERIODS OF SNOW WILL CONTINUE INTO MONDAY EVENING WITH A CHANCE OF SNOW SHOWERS IN THE VALLEYS.
COMPUTER MODELS CONTINUE TO PROJECT 1 TO 2 FEET OF SNOW OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN SAN JUAN MOUNTAINS WHILE LESSER SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE NORTH. THE COMBINATION OF SNOW AND WIND WILL MAKE TRAVEL DIFFICULT OVER THE MOUNTAIN PASSES ESPECIALLY SUNDAY NIGHT WHEN THE BRUNT OF THE WINTER STORM MARCH

It is really needed. Yesterday the Grand Junction area had three different brush fires going as winds picked up in no time and caused problems. The GJ fire department was busy all afternoon. All told there have been 9 fires this week.

And they tended to a fire that I saw up close just a while ago on 25 Road just a ways north of Patterson. We need moisture in this area. The economy hasn't been kind to the fire dept. just like the other government agencies.

The red flag warning is up till 8 tonight, winds have been gusting to 30 to 35 m.p.h.
