URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE...CORRECTED
National Weather Service GRAND JUNCTION CO

.A winter storm will be impacting the Colorado mountains beginning
tonight and persisting into Saturday morning. The storm will start
out on the warm side with impacts mainly near mountain pass level
and above. Cold air arrives Friday afternoon to NW Colorado and
will make the southern border by sunrise on Saturday. The colder
air will make for better accumulating snowfall as well as quickly
icing and freezing roadways. Travel impacts are possible tonight

the area Friday night as the cold air arrives.

It's been 2 weeks since Jim posted the above--finally a sizable weather system is blowing through the state. Right now it's 47 degrees at my house. Tomorrow's high probably won't reach that. Looks like rain/possible snow in Mesa County, according to KKCO-11 weather. Not very sizable though, at last guess 3-4 inches around Vail, 1-3 inches in the northern mountains. And there will be wind-lots and lots of wind.

They didn't mention a lot around SW Colorado. Jim, whatcha got for Montrose/Ridgway/Gunnison?

ADD--------the front just got here with winds at a steady 20-25mph. Gusting to 35-40.

Had 20-40mph winds all day with a high of 65. It will rain and or snow or do nothing. Forecast this week is sunshine and highs in the 40's.

I think snow is that white stuff, trying to remember.

No measurable snow here in a month. November was bleak. This is not good.
My sister and niece send videos and photos from San Antonio, my nephew in Austin sends photos of the snow that's falling there tonight.
What the heck?

Neditate is right! Yesterday KKCO-11 out of Grand Junction said the Midland/Odessa area got a few inches of snow and that San Antone/Houston was going to get some of it. I wonder how many decades its been since that happened?

The Texans are not alone in their wonderment of this wacky weather, the snow is falling as far east as Atlanta where the storm, you guessed it, snarled traffic. Story here, with pix.

A frigid sunny 52F here in Phoenix today...

I read that it's been 12 years since there was snow at the Alamo.

Here outside Boston, the first snow of the year just started falling.

.
They likely had a few snowflakes a dozen years ago, but it's been 30 years for any measurable snow.
"The most recent comparable snowfall in San Antonio had been in January 1987, when 1.3 inches of snow accumulated." San Antonio received 13" in 1985! (I have family living there since 1980)

The national weather service in Pueblo is reporting that we could get 3 snow storms by Christmas!

This is what they posted on Facebook.

If you've been waiting for some real winter weather, your wait may be just about over. For the past few days, forecast models have been hinting that a pattern change may be in the works. This forecast animation shows not one, not two but three winter weather systems to impact the region between now and December 21st. The first and weakest of the three systems is forecast to move through on Thursday. A second, more vigorous storm is poised to move through Saturday night into Sunday. A 3rd and potentially even stronger storm system could impact the area just a few days before Christmas, on Thursday, December 21st. Since these are relatively new developments in the models, forecast confidence in the details of these systems remains very low at this point. Regardless, signals in the models like this are often a good indicator that a pattern change is coming. Stay tuned to the forecast in the days and weeks ahead. We will try to let you know when the temps will tank and the flakes will fly.
