There was a blurb in the Post about this, too. I've never shoveled muddier snow than from that storm last week. Left the deck, roof, etc. filthy, and brownish icicles to boot!

Here in Grand Junction, far from the front range population blob, the mean temperature thru the first 115 days of 2013 ( April 25th ), is running 4.39 degrees BELOW normal. Most of this was due to an extremely cold January. The only month close to normal thus far was March, with a mean monthly temperature .45 above normal. The mean temp for first 25 days of April is running 3.66 degrees below normal. If the projected highs in the 80s pan out during the next few days, most if not all of that deficit will disappear by the end of the month.

Dry and warmer weather is expected today through Monday as high pressure and moderate west winds aloft prevail over the western U.S. Only a weak thunderstorm or two are possible over the San Juan mountains late this afternoon. On Tuesday a cold front and strong jet stream aloft will bring increasing clouds and winds, with cooler temperatures.

I officially declare Winter Weather 2012-2013 OVER!

Nope. Snow is in the forecast for Denver and the mountains for Wednesday, 2-6 inches depending on where you are at.

84 in Denver tomorrow, 33 on Wednesday.

Blazing into the state today from the west, looks like the snowpack isn't all that bad.

Gotta agree with waneroo that winter is not over yet! Just came from a weekend visit with my brothers from PA who are doing a week of service work at a camp in Bailey-CO. The forecast for Wednesday is a HIGH of 30, with a possibility of 4 to 8 inches of snow

Just looked on accuweather.com and if you can believe their month-long forecast for May then this week will be the last gasp of wintry weather in COLO SPGS. Their forecast for Wed, 01 May, is for a high of 37F and a low of 16F. It also shows some rain coming each week after that.

YMMV by location.

I figure we can close this thread by the end of June....

And it will be HOT and windy here. Oh wait, I won't be HERE but for a few more days, then I'll be UP THERE! It might actually snow up there. YAY!!!

I did see the Denver news talking heads last night whine about the upcoming cold and snow. Oh boo hoo. It could snow another 30 feet and I would be happy.

Haha that's a good one! "Winter" may be over but the weather is not.
I will not be at all surprised to see another foot of snow this week, starting tomorrow night. April has been a good month. Snow every week, 54" so far.
