More To Come

8 am

Another band of snow will work its way into the area from west to east around 9-10 am, Cortez and Mancos will be the first to see it. Let us know.

I am not sure how everyone came out last night, I had 3 1/2 at the house, but this thing is far from over, yesterday I talked about heavier bands setting up over certain areas. The short term HiRes model is all in on this happening on for the eastern half of La Plata and all of Archuleta County today

It shows some pretty remarkable totals. This is only until midnight tonight. I will update after the other models come out, but I wanted you to be aware of what this model is saying this morning.

If this verifies Bayfield would get 10-15 inches by midnight and Forest Lakes and the entire 240 corridor from Edgemont to Vallecito would see 12-20 inches by midnight.

In town, Durango would see 5-8 inches more. Dwest and areas west would generally see 8-15 inches. Purgatory 6-12, Pagosa 8-12. Cortez, Mancos and Dolores 2-6 inches. Mayday would be in 14-20 range. Breen to Shenandoah and areas south etc would be in the 5-10 inch range. Aztec and Farmington 2-4.

Again this is just today until midnight.

I am sorry for the wide range in totals but I was caught off guard with this model run and I want to see more data. It is also showing less precip on Tuesday than I was counting on.

Some of you picked up on the fact that I called the Thursday-Friday system a “major” storm. That is correct, the models are still leaning towards higher totals with that one.

I will be posting frequently today stay tuned.
