    We ended up with ~6” at 8400’ sw of Denver. Was expecting a bit more, but was happy enough with the result. Unfortunately, this is the time of year when I leave for work in the dark and get home in the dark, so I have no pictures to share. I’ll definitely share whenever we have a weekend snow.

    We had some hail last night with overnight temps right around freezing. Ground was white with hail in some places on the drive in to work this morning.

    Looking like a few inches here in Conifer this week. With any luck this will be our last accumulating snowfall of the season and we can roll into a summertime pattern.

    Models are converging nicely on a very wet event in my area. Will be interested to see how much accumulation we get with all the warmth leading up to the storm. I’m thinking 8-12 depth Saturday morning between melting and compaction - sure would be great to reduce wildfire risk!

    You can pretty well bet on that snowstorm next week. I’m getting concrete flatwork poured next Wednesday. That’s got to work better for bringing on a snowstorm than washing cars.

    Here’s a pic from in Conifer Sunday evening. Not the best quality, but the sky was beautiful.

    Ended up with about a foot of cement in my area of Bailey. Spring storms are nice here because the moist layer is deeper, meaning we don't get shafted as often on the downsloping from a higher ridge to the northeast. Typical midwinter storms give areas 10 miles NE of me at the same elevation 2-4x the snow.

    We ended up with a storm total of around 12". 5-6" Monday night with 6" last night.

    Don't challenge Mother Nature. We have one more shot Tuesday.

    Agreed. Even in the foothills. But all the local news stations are hanging on to their predictions for whatever reason. These last 3 storms (if you include tonight's) have all been more accurately predicted by the NAM and other short term models. GFS and Euro hang on to their dreams until the end. Coming from the east, I never thought I'd see the day where the NAM was drier, and accurately so, than the GFS/Euro.

    Looks like a chance for snow on the plains Friday night into Saturday, so you might just get your laugh.

    Storm day and as I'm downtown right now it is 74. WWA in the metro for 3-6" tonight and Winter Storm Warning for the foothills for 6-12" tonight. I love Colorado spring weather.

    GFS and NAM seem to be trending rapidly drier for the Thursday/Friday storm. Winter Storm watch for 7-15" is looking pretty optimistic. Maybe next week's storms can perform.

    12z GFS brings the SuperSoaker to most of CO east of the divide. Hopefully it's correct. Would love to be measuring in feet of snow starting later this week at 8,400' in the foothills southwest of Denver.

    Lucky! It took me 4 hours and 6 minutes to make my 42 mile commute (door to door). My RTD bus got stuck on Alameda in the center lane, so it wasn't safe for the driver to get out and chain up. Worst commute of my working life by far. On the other hand, I'd love to see a lot more snow before the summer hits. We're at 50% or less of average in the foothills south of I-70. Going to be a very bad fire year if things don't change soon.
