I would love to have a single storm bring over 30 inches of snow to pueblo!

Well, this latest system is finally out of here. Another system possibly coming in Thursday night. Right now I'm watching KKCO11 news, they're saying the morning temperatures in Craig is -17 degrees, Meeker and Rangely -9 degrees.

A series of weak Pacific storms will pass through the region over the next few days. Each system will bring a few snow showers to the northern mountains. The best chance for widespread accumulating snow in the mountains will arrive later Wednesday night and Thursday. This system will bring the potential for snowfall accumulations in excess of 6 inches to the Park and Gore Ranges as well as the Flat Tops southwest of Steamboat Springs. Dry conditions are expected for the Valleys as temperatures remain below normal for this time of year. Look for drier weather this weekend along with a slow warm-up, before another storm pushes in Sunday night and Monday.

Well, the snow was weak down here in Gunbarrel, so I decided to go for a hike up a few miles from town on Sunday morning. As I was out about 3 miles from the car, the snow got heavy and by the time I returned to the car 5 inches had fallen and I could not get my car up the hill from the trailhead! Had to leave it there, but luckily a nice couple with a 4x4 was in the area and gave me a ride home. What a difference a few miles and a couple thousand feet makes. There was no snow before we even got down the canyon to Boulder.

Ain't it great. When helps is needed there is no lack of good samaritins. They made your day, and helping you out made their day as well.

It looks like more snow is forecasted for Pueblo.

This is what Siri had to say:

Looking out the window I see it snowing on the Grand Mesa now. I hope we get into a pattern of significant moisture for the next several weeks and through March.

A series of upper level disturbances in northwest flow aloft will result in periods of moderate snow for the northern Colorado mountains today and Friday. Occasional light snow is also expected to bring light accumulations in the northern valleys and central mountains. Please refer to NWS Grand Junction, CO for the latest on the advisories in effect. Weak high pressure will then bring dry and slightly warmer weather for the majority of the weekend. Another weak disturbance is expected Sunday night into Monday, with a potentially stronger storm system by the middle of next week

As of now no snow in Pueblo. Hopefully it moves in later if it does I will post a picture. At least the mountains are getting snow.

Wink In the high country

"Bly said that total was one of the five lowest January readings in the books. Going back more than 100 years, the average January snowfall in town is nearly two feet. The little bit of snow that did fall during the month was also excruciatingly dry. Bly said the snow-water equivalent was just 0.11 inches, compared to the historic average of 1.53 inches." [1]



Some of the points mentioned:
Precipitation (as measured at this station in Summit County) is 60% of normal.

Snowfall for the date of measure is normally 78"; it is presently (at date of measure) at 43.85". Last year was actually better at this date, at 62".

The drought of 1980/81 was even worse (this date), with just 24" of snow through January.

Temperatures have been erratic. Temperatures were below average for January in Dillon, with lows below zero for 17 of first 20 days. But lows above zero last ten days of month, with a near-record high of 50 F on January 24.

There is at least hope of some salvation. The drought of 2000 saw mid-March storms dropping more than 7 feet of snow in some Colorado mountain locations.
