Yeah, you know it's dry when you see two trees fighting over a dog . . .

This is a view of downtown Pueblo from this morning on my way to work.

I'm jealous! Boulder got 1.1 in; I don't know what the official total was in Louisville. It seemed pretty similar.

Thanks! A few times a season Pueblo gets more snow then you guys up north and this was one of the storms. Its always a fun treat when I wake up to storms like that because it is so rare in Pueblo!

Question Thundersnow

Well it looks like the weather patterns are starting to change as another storm is headed to the front range. According to KRDO 13 this could be a intense storm that could include thunder snow.

This is the forecast map from KRDO:



They are saying the snowfall rate could be 2 inches a hour which means if it snows for a few hours about 3-6 inches of snow. However if it stalls over the region we could see a significant amount. I am going to keep my fingers crossed and if we get a nice thunder snowstorm then I will make a video of it.

As usual, the media sensationalizes what looks to be a pretty normal winter storm. Reading the actual National Weather Service forecast discussion, it appears that a relatively moist, but quick moving system may offer a good shot of moisture to southern Colorado, but not anything outstanding. After that, two storms may affect Colorado from Sunday to Tuesday, but neither appears to be packing much moisture and both latter storms will affect northern and central Colorado predominantly.

I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth--I'll take any moisture that we can get, but gushing over what is pretty much a normal December winter snow event I will leave to the people get their weather forecasts from the weather journalism equivalent of the National Enquirer.

NEWS is now an acronym for: National Enquirer Weather Sensationalism

Of course, it used to be fun to watch the "weather babes" on the Weather Channel, but most of them are middle-aged now, so the novelty has pretty much worn off. Parenthetically, some years back, one of the most beautiful women that I ever saw in my life was a National Weather Service meteorologist at a now-closed NWS office here in the Rocky Mountain West. She had a voice to match. She could have read the high-low temperatures off a list for me for four hours on end and I would have just sat and listened. I was told that she actually did record a lot of the daily forecasts broadcasted over the weather radio for the office where she worked--this before the NWS started using the automated voices ("Perfect Paul" and, later, "Tom"). Ahh, for the good ol' days . . .

After the start in the winter season we had I will be glad to have a normal December weather pattern.

IF the temperatures and the precipitation would stay close to the long term norms, the weather would be rather delightful, but the derivation of the long term norms include the sometime dramatic swings over the years. Obviously, during the last year especially, we've been simultaneously mired in a swing to the dry side and a swing to the warm/hot side. Unless we really have entered a new normal of hot and dry, we'll have a prolonged spell of cold and wet at some point in the future.
