***Winter Storm Watch Across the South from Wednesday Morning into Thursday*** 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.

I hope so too. A snowpack of 500% above normal would be nice and probably bring us to normal. I know I'll get a dusting here, if that. Brown brown brown brown...

I just saw this. This is for all the counties just east of Pueblo and Colorado Springs. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the low pressure tracks just right so the winter weather advisory gets move just a bit west to include at least Pueblo. The scenario for this to happen would be for the low pressure to track over Albuquerque creating a Albuquerque low. With how slow the low pressure is moving this could give Pueblo a significant snow event.

Urgent - winter weather message
national weather service pueblo co
316 pm mst tue feb 19 2013


The national weather service in pueblo has issued a winter weather advisory for snow and blowing snow...which is in effect from 11 am wednesday to 11 am mst thursday.


* location...the sawatch mountains...eastern san juans...la garita mountains...western mosquito range...wet mountains...sangre de cristo mountains...and rampart range along with teller county.

* cause and timing...a strong winter storm will track through arizona on wednesday and then through northern new mexico wednesday night...bringing moderate snow accumulations to the mountains.

* snow accumulation...for the continental divide...sangre de cristo mountains...and wet mountains...6 to 10 inches with locally higher amounts. For the pikes peak region...3 to 8 inches with the higher amounts above 10000 feet.

* wind...winds will be relatively light from the south until thursday morning as a cold front moves through. Then...winds will be from the north to northwest at 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph.

Not much of a snow event, but certainly better than nothing. THINK SNOW! In a normal year, 6 to 10 inches of snow in the mountains would barely register in anyone's awareness.

The NWS in Pueblo has issued a winter storm watch for Pueblo and Colorado Springs. It still depends on the track of the low pressure but if it becomes a Albuquerque low we have the potential to get a significant amount of snow. My fingers are still crossed!

Looks like this latest storm will have an eastern track and miss us on the western slope. Darn it! Cloudy and 30 this morning.
