As much as I would love several inches of rain, I have to admit today was splendid. Bright sunshine, 52 degrees and NO wind. Spend most of the day outside enjoying it.

Periods of high and mid level clouds will pass through today ahead of a quick moving upper level trough and surface cold front. A quick shot of snow is expected for the mountains with the cold front, beginning late this afternoon across the far north reaching the central/southern mountains tonight. General accumulations of 2-5 inches are likely in the mountains, with some very light snowfall also possible over the northern/central valleys. Snow ends on Monday morning with fair conditions into Tuesday, with a stronger winter storm possible by Wednesday.

Great snowshoeing conditions on the Skyway Trail System up on the Grand Mesa today. Overcast and mildly windy, but very pleasant nonetheless. Compared to previous years ( excluding last year ), the snowpack is rather miniscule. We need some serious snowfall in March and April or some of the many lakes up there are going to have extremely low water levels come summer.

Just came through the San Juans. Negligible new snow and so warm that any new snow has already melted. Another "snoozer" storm, plus temperatures a good 10-15 degrees above normal.

According to KRDO 13 there is a chance southern Colorado, including Pueblo and Colorado Springs, could get a blizzard by Thursday. It all depends on how the low pressure tracks. I will keep a eye on it as I want a blizzard.

I had lunch with my friend who lives in Ridgway, met up w/ him at Starvin' Arvins Restaurant in Montrose. He said he only got a half inch at best and it was gone in an hour.

High pressure will bring fair conditions tonight and Tuesday ahead of a winter storm moving in from the southwest early Wednesday. This system will impact the region into early Thursday possibly bringing significant snowfall to the southern mountains and foothills. Unsettled conditions will continue Thursday afternoon into Friday bringing additional mountain snow. Another storm will sweep across the area from the northwest this weekend. Temperatures will be below normal through much of the week.

Sounds like a recipe for another dusting in Grand Junction and Fruita.
