Starting a new topic for this storm. I don't think we've done that in a very long time. Snow/rain/UP started here at 10:42, 35 F.

LOL, as in never.  Great plan though.

12z Euro drops snow totals for much of the area.
Ah...the last minute euro pull the rug thing. I guess that happens everywhere

?Parker looks like about 20" snow with about 2.0 QPF, about where it was 18 hours ago- so not bad really.

The 00z was a solid .5" more qpf for the whole metro with 2.8" downtown. But the 00z was the most juiced run so far so not surprising to see it tone it back a bit. The mid-level positioning of the low was the same or even a hair south so that was good.

Not to get too cute, but the S side of Estes Park appears on the Meso's to be the favored area, looks like several hotels (One left w vacancy DAO house is at 9 K ) on S edge of town  more favorable with this lift and less down sloping than down town or west side. The SPC HREF shows this pretty clearly in its Runs. Most everyone is gonna Crush but i didn't look at this earlier and its pretty notable.

I still have too much PTSD from 14 years living in the mid-Atlantic seeing snow storms disappear 4 hours before they're supposed to start.

I feel the same way man. I think we are good here though. Just try to relax (throwing stones in glass houses, I know) :)

almost .5" on the patio table not sticking to the sidewalks at all yet. getting some heavier bursts and then back to a snow rate that is maybe in equilibrium with the melting. gradually getting whiter though.

looks like Longmont to FOCO is a little more consistent right now
