Here in Grand Junction, the inversion is well established and the wintery smog is showing it's ugly face.

That is funny you say that because I saw a inversion over Pueblo and we had a brown cloud and it was hazy.

Looking at the accuweather forecast, looks like next week a number of storms are going to be rolling through Colorado dumping snow, so it might not be a bad year after all.

^^^Shaping up very nicely for the immediate future. Let us hope that it is the start of a long term trend.

NWS Grand Junction: Today will remain much colder than normal. Temperatures will gradually moderate with the warming first noticed at the higher elevations as inversions help hold the cold air in the valleys. A weak storm system will bring light snowfall...mainly to the northern mountains...Sunday. A larger storm system off the Pacific Northwest coast today will move inland Sunday and Monday and bring widepsread snowfall to all elevations Monday through Christmas Day.

They now revised the forecast high to 20 degrees with snow on Christmas Day in Pueblo. Again it depends on the track of the low pressure but I might get a white Christmas after all!

On the weather report last nite, the weather guy mentioned the possibility of another snowstorm on 12/24-25. That would be a nice treat! It's been at least 3 or 4 years since it snowed on Christmas Day in Grand Junction
At least that long since it did so in Denver as well.

Though I gotta say that I felt an excitement the other day, that I felt when I was a kid in school, hoping for enough snow to cancel classes the next day. I even had fun shovelling the driveway. It seems that not having to drive to work on snowy roads is changing my attitude toward snow. Bring on the Christmas day snowfall/blizzard!
That's usually how I feel, too, but one year my nephew was flying in from Chicago on Christmas Day and we got about 6-10 inches. (2007 or 2008, I think.) He did make it in, but some of the fam couldn't get to Denver from Colorado Springs.

Update: All mountain areas are now under a winter weather advisory early Monday through early Christmas Day. A dry southwest to west flow aloft will continue tonight, with cold air remaining trapped in many snow covered valleys. A weak disturbance will bring an inch or two of snow to the northern mountains on Sunday, with dry conditions elsewhere. A stronger system will bring widespread light to moderate snow early Monday morning into Christmas morning. Snow amounts in the mountains will range from 8-10 inches with isolated totals over a foot. The valleys are expected to see a trace to 3 inches, refer to NWS Grand Junction, CO for the latest on the coming snowfall.

Well it looks like Pueblo is going to get a white Christmas but I can't tell exactly where the low pressure is going to track. If it sets up right Pueblo could get a significant snow storm if not just a few inches. Right now I am thinking in the middle so maybe 3-6 inches but I will keep a eye on the low pressure.

We're getting snow right now in the Grand Junction area. Not a huge amount as they're calling for two inches.
