Expected accumulation is 1"~3" this afternoon, 12"~18" overnight, and another 3"~5" Tuesday, for a storm total of sixteen to twenty-six inches of snow. And on top of that, it's forecast to be "blustery", with sustained winds of ~15MPH gusting to near 30MPH.
Low tonight is forecast to be 20*, and low tomorrow night should be around 2*.
The NWS has forecast travel conditions along the I-25 Urban Corridor to be "impossible" at times. That means I-80 will most likely be shutdown, so travel in and out of here is pretty much a NOGO until Tuesday afternoon, maybe.
Out the front door at 1600 local:
And the backyard:
So it'll be a good night to stay in, follow the weather, and just kick back. I've had to work outdoors in weather like this, and it's not pleasant. Downright brutal, in fact. So a tip of the hat to all those who do work out there, and please keep warm.
Backyard at 2000 local time. Compare the patio table for an estimate. Looks like at least 6", and it's just getting cranked up.....
2200 local. Looks like the chairs and tabled will blend together by morning.
And now the forecast is for an addition 13"~19" overnight, with 3"~5" more before noon......I don't think anybody is going anywhere Tuesday morning!
Still no wind, which is a good thing, as this much powder will drift like crazy. It's right about 26*, with an expected low of 20*, and a high Tuesday of 26*, so it's gonna stay pretty frozen, dry, and driftable.
Wonder what it'll be like in the morning.
