Great question. For most areas the short term models indicate by noon things should stop and a few areas will see some heavy waves come through before it ends. They are moving from west to east and southwest to northeast. We have had a couple of heavy waves here that brought another 3 inches in a little over 2 hours, bringing the total for Dwest to 11 inches.
The models are hugging the western 1/3 of La Plata County, and eastern 1/4 of Montezuma County for scattered snow most of the day. I mentioned before in some areas it will be difficult to tell the end of this storm with the beginning on the next, that will be the case in higher elevations above 8,500′.
There is a feature in Utah right now and I don’t know what will happen with it. Based on the forecast, the NWS feels it is going to eject to the northwest rather than make it all of the way over here. Something to watch. I don’ think we need leftovers with this one.
Here is the latest surface map, I circled the shortwave (feature) in blue.
Later today I will talk about the next two storms. The first will arrive in approximately 36 hours and looks very similar to this.
