.18" of rain last night, clear and cool this morning.

This next storm system has the potential to produce significant snow over the northwestern mountains of Colorado from midnight tonight through Wednesday. Heavy wet snow is possible with accumulations of 15 to 25 inches with upwards to 30 inches. Elsewhere, mountain snow with valley rain showers are expected on Monday (except mostly dry far south). Very windy conditions will develop on Tuesday with intermittent showers. Much colder conditions are forecast on Wednesday with mountain snow showers likely.

Our 50/50/50 weather pattern was one 50 short in Mesa County last night. No snowflakes. The 50 m.p.h. winds went for a good hour.

I think we were 2 50s short in Grand Junction....no raindrops and no snowflakes. Just the 50 mph desiccating wind.

Actually in Fruita we DID get rain-heck, it was double the amount--maybe 100 raindrops!

A moist Pacific storm system will spread widespread snow across northwest Colorado today and tonight. Occasional moderate to heavy snow will occur across northwest Colorado. Valley areas will have snow this morning, but is expected to change over to rain this afternoon. For the southern areas, considerably but more windy with gusts to 35-40 mph. Rain and snow will stay confined to the La Sal, Abajo, and San Juan mountains. This storm will continue through Wednesday, but a period of drier weather is expected during the day on Tuesday, but precipitation will be on the increase Tuesday evening with snow levels lowering to the valley floors.

We woke up to 2" of snow yesterday. Eldora, 8 miles to the southwest, reported a foot of snow. This morning it is snowing heavily. I measured 3" an hour ago and it looks like there's another inch on the white board. We're on the southern end of this storm. I'm hoping that Estes Park and RMNP are getting dumped on. They really need it up there.

Just saw a snow report on the RMNP Facebook page - both east and west entrances have about 10" as of an hour ago. Good news.

Rained steadily all day in Grand Junction, racking up a total of .35 inches thus far. Best rainy day in many moons.
