Does that translate into powder higher up? Anyway, drought at any time is no good!

Our summer droughts happen when we donít have enough water stored up from the winter.

A few big storms can change this quickly, but not looking very good right now.

A strong winter storm will work through the southern Great Basin
on Tuesday and progress into the Four Corners region by Tuesday
night, continuing into Wednesday. An abundance of moisture
wrapped around this system will spread into eastern Utah and
western Colorado and bring the potential for significant snowfall
to most mountain areas.

Exact snowfall amounts remain in question, but there is the
potential for new accumulations of 8 to 14 inches for the
mountains with amounts close to 2 feet possible across the higher
southern mountain peaks. Higher valley snowfall may vary between 1
and 4 inches. The greatest accumulations are expected Tuesday
night through Wednesday morning.

WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH
WEDNESDAY EVENING...(Western Slope)

* WHAT...Heavy snow possible. Plan on difficult travel conditions
during the evening commute on Wednesday. Total snow
accumulations of 8 to 16 inches, with localized amounts possibly
reaching up to 2 feet, are possible.

Thanks to Skydog77 for the updated SNOTEL chart.

Yes, those numbers are accurate. Night before last, GJ's NBC affiliate KKCO ran the ski areas snow depths and Wolf Creek came in with all of 19 inches. I've lived all over Colorado all my life and I don't ever remember THAT happening. The Western Slope didn't cash in very much with this past storm on Saturday night, the GJ area got an inch at the most.

Hopefully this storm that Jim just posted on will do a big dump. Hopefully.

9News said we are at a 37 year low right now. Not the lowest in my lifetime, but certainly the lowest I remember.

Dusting of snow overnight in Montrose. Winter Storm Warning and Winter Storm Watch for areas of the western slope for tomorrow with up to 3 feet of snow forecast for the mountains and snow to the valley floors. Sure hope so!

Sadly it was only rain in Pueblo proper but we could use the moisture.
