Maybe a slushy inch of snow here in Boulder. A lot of liquid though. It will be great for the plants.

This storm has been a dud up here in Estes valley, only about 6" so far with flurries currently and the sun trying hard to break out.  A rather beautiful snowfall, but under performing.  I did not follow early models, but it looks like the low tracked a bit south?

Scattered rain here, snow higher up - but interesting to note that this appears to be the third coldest April 16th in 100 years or so of complete temperature data here - high of 50F/51F is behind only 1976 and 1924 for Albuquerque on April 16th. It's the equivalent of an early December or late January day here in terms of when this might be average. Wouldn't be surprised if we go over to snow if another band comes in overnight. 44F at 5 pm is cold here for Apr 16th at 5 pm.

10" on the nose total here at 3:30 PM, a bit more since. Radar not totally giving up yet either. I drove from DTC/Centennial to downtown DEN and back three times today ferrying kids to things and went from winter to spring to winter to spring to winter to winter to winter.

I bet there will be a few measurements from the Monument/Black Forest area that are close to 20".  COS area will do well too. Sorry for those north of town, this one has been weird.

Fort Collins has really missed the snow so far- we have about 0.1" with some big flakes right now. Temps were above freezing due to downsloping.

Glad you guys cashed in parts of the metro and south.  All in all, a pretty good winter so no complaints on missing the big dog.

Well, we weren't totally missed by moisture. There has been possibly up to 0.75" of rain/snow here. Snow is building up on elevated surfaces.

The Evergeen/Conifer area will likely end up with over 3' from this storm.

Not much further until my deck rails are completely under snow. I'm about 10 miles SW of Conifer and typically receive much less snow, but we're probably at 25+" at the moment and coming down at a good clip. I have heard reports already over 3' on Conifer Mountain (about 10,000')

storm reports since Fri morning. I heard that Breckenridge got 14" in just 6 hours yesterday- today I expect that area got something significant, like 12"

Still snowing decently here but with the increasing sun angle I think we are about done accumulating. 18" will do it.

FTG storm total radar - up to 5.5" southwest of Denver. Actual storm total values in central Colorado are higher than this shows, due to radar terrain blocking.

17.7" storm total, dang heavy, probably about 2.5" liquid. This one would be one for the John Deere beast back in Central MA that we sold when we moved.Pics are not as impressive as those from Conifer/Evergreen so not really worth posting, except for the 4 and a half foot snowbank from shoveling that probably has 6 inches of water in it, easy.
