The wind can make even relatively moderate ( 45 to 55 degrees ) temperatures seem bitterly cold. Over here in Grand Junction we've had some recent day time highs in the low 50s with a steady wind that FEELS as cold as the windless 20 degree highs in early January. It all depends which way you're walking. Going into the wind it feels like mid winter, and with the wind at your back it feels pleasantly warm. As much as I dislike the wind here it's quite modest compared to the coastal wind that blows in Virginia Beach ( where I lived before Colorado ) at this time of the year. Man, I don't miss that crap at all.

6:45pm> Monument> close to the Palmer Divide> 16 degrees with 30 mph winds. Pretty much the same all day. Visibilty goes from 1/4 mile to 50 feet. The snow is not falling, but flying by horizontally. I had to experience the conditions, so I bundled up and ventured around the house. Definitely on the cold side, especially in the wind. I think I'll try it again, but will cover my face this time cause my nose froze earlier.

Hey Wizard, we've had strong winds all day and snow flurries coming in sideways with it, but no accumulation all day. In fact, I'm looking straight up at blue sky and sunshine, with snow flying by horizontally. Just below the Palmer Divide, across from the USAF Academy. Amazing stuff!

I think a magic 8 ball could predict the weather better than the weather man.

The wind is howling over here as I type. Consistent 40 mph winds. Big storm blowing in here tonight. Calling for possible snow at 5000 ft. level. Was gonna go out of town this weekend. Um, maybe not! Supposed to really be nasty this weekend. Josseppie's post is right. Time to lay in a beer supply tonight!

5:45 update: it is REALLY howling, temperature has dropped 16 degrees in last 15 minutes-YIKES!

HH, we have the wind here today too in Colo Spgs, all the way on the other side of the state.

Depending on how THIS week's storm tracks, the far northern reaches of Colo Spgs (aka Monument / Palmer Lake) could get well over a foot. Too soon to tell, the storm is complex in it's tracking and variables.

I recall a winter during my childhood back east, about 1960 I think it was, where EVERY Wednesday we got a snow storm, for about two months that year.
