Here we go again...

By: MrMixon, 6:51 PM GMT on April 30, 2013

For Larimer and Boulder Counties Between 6000 and 9000 Feet:

Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 6 PM this evening to 6 PM MDT Wednesday...

* timing... snow will be widespread this evening and continue through Wednesday afternoon.

* Snow accumulations... 10 to 20 inches... heaviest along east facing slopes.




I live just southwest of Boulder, near the line between the 15-18" and 18-20" predicted totals.



It's been a very snowy spring here... the dark blue line in the plot above shows snowpack for this year. You can see how our April snows have put us almost within striking distance of our normal snowpack (the red line), though significant melting has occurred over the past week. It will be interesting to see the little bump we get from tonight's/tomorrow's storm.

Spring snow on the way

By: MrMixon, 8:00 PM GMT on April 08, 2013

We've been having very spring-ish weather lately. I saw the first non-frozen precipitation (rain) of the year at home near Nederland last weekend (March 30th). Last night we got some of the largest graupel I've ever seen... marble size and even a few larger pieces. I put a couple in the fridge and might post some pictures if I get to it tonight.

We're on tap for another shot of precipitation tomorrow as a strong low pressure system tracks through the Four Corners area. The water vapor loop below shows the system pretty clearly. Models are still all over the board in terms of amounts, but our warning is calling for 8-16" of snow through tomorrow and MUCH colder temperatures for the next few days (it's a balmy 53F in Nederland right now).
