The National Weather Service has issued Winter Weather Advisories and Winter Storm Warnings throughout much of Colorado for today through Sunday morning. The storm is tracking to hit SW Colorado and the San Juan Mountains the hardest with over 2 feet possible in the high country.
Let’s hope these early storms are a good sign for the season and La Nina comes a little more South than last year. The following is from the National Weather Service:
“ANOTHER FAST MOVING AND COLD PACIFIC STORM WILL TRACK ACROSS EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO TONIGHT AND SATURDAY. THIS STORM WILL BRING WIDESPREAD ACCUMULATING SNOW TO THE HIGH COUNTRY…WITH THE SNOW HEAVY AT TIMES. RAIN AND SNOW ARE LIKELY IN THE VALLEYS. THIS STORM WILL EXIT TO THE EAST SATURDAY NIGHT.
A SECOND STORM WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION LATE SUNDAY AND MONDAY… BRINGING MORE SNOW TO THE FORECAST AREA.”
Check out this forecast from NOAA for 13,000 ft in the Telluride area. That’s 19-29″ by Saturday people! Let’s hope there right…
