The NBC affiliate for Mesa County is KKCO, they were showing pictures last night of the mountains east of Telluride. Looks to be around the 11,000 ft. level. Five day forecast for Mesa County is partly cloudy to cloudy, highs in the 50's-60's.

I guess there were a few flakes in the air in Teller County today. Other mountain areas also got snow - a friend reported snow on Rabbit Ears Pass. We drove up Old Stage Road from Colorado Springs and near the top the clouds were freezing themselves to the trees so that made for some very pretty and interesting views.

...THE SEASONS FIRST MEANINGFUL SNOWFALL WILL OCCUR FOR THE
MOUNTAINS THIS WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...

A strong storm system will move southeastward across Utah and
Arizona through the weekend. This system will impact eastern Utah
and western Colorado with widespread rainfall and scattered
thunderstorms to the valleys and accumulating snow to the
mountains. Snow levels for Colorado will fluctuate between 10,000
feet and 12,000 feet Sunday afternoon as warmer air remains over
that area. This may result in slushy conditions at the passes
with best accumulating snow above 12,000 feet on Sunday. Snow
levels are anticipated to drop to around 9,000 feet late Sunday
night into Monday and potentially down to 8,000 feet Monday
evening, as colder air moves in.

The Grand Mesa got a couple inches of snow, KKCO showed it on the 10 p.m. news. Another front will be coming in from Salt Lake to hit Mesa County late tonight, not a big moisture maker though.

That's good news.
We received .32" of rain last weekend and 8" of snow this week. Upslope all week (5.5 days) until Thursday late afternoon. It was dangerously dry here a week ago. The badly needed precipitation helps in the short run but the drought is far from over. Hope we get the snow that is in the forecast tonight and tomorrow.
