Mountain West Discussion

We had quite the lightning show to kickoff the spring/summer thread up here around 10pm last night, but it moved thru pretty quickly.  Today is rather socked in with low ceilings and current temps in the 40's.  BTW, did NWS Boulder get a new forecaster?  The AFD this morning was rather colorful.

 

 

I think so- I really liked their short term discussion.

Struggling to get out of the soup here and get a little heating.

And now the total is up to 4.79" at one and 5.02" at another. Still raining, less hard. I think it took about 7 months to get the previous 5" and this time it took 32 hours.

The only time Fort Collins got close to 5" was the flood of 2013. Fort Collins had 5" in a week, Horsetooth Mountain had about 9".

And DIA was a relative low-precip site compared to several others in the Metro area. Places that got the brunt of the thunderstorms received 1-1.25 inches on the 10th, and much of the south and east metro area received 3.7-4.3 inches on the 11th. So this was really significant, especially because on the 10th the QPF predictions were mostly between 1.5 and 2.5 inches for the entire event.

The Cherry Creek Reservoir level went up 9 feet over the last 3 days. This is 1.8 feet short of the 3rd highest level ever, in 1983, and about as high as I have seen it in our 13 years here, comparable to the September 2013 flood. This is also a special event because prior to the rain, it was at its lowest point in several years due to the dry winter.

Just finished up my undergrad meteorology degree at Millersville in PA. Will be moving to Laramie, WY come late July to settle in for grad school at UWYO. Excited to be apart of the Mountain West and to join y'all

Congrats and welcome! I don't think we have any posters from WY so that's especially good.

Also, noticed you're from Fleetwood- we lived in Allentown (actually Emmaus) for several years in the mid 90s and my wife grew up in Bethlehem.
