Here is How This One Ends

11 am

A sloppy morning for most with snow coming down at Purgatory. Even though the heaviest stuff has fallen this storm is going to drag on for another 24 to 36 hours depending on your location.

I decided to go with the snapshots as I did yesterday. These are 6-hour timeframes and shows what type of weather will be expected during that time frame,  lighter colors mean lighter precipitation darker colors mean heavier precipitation. Just to clarify it does not mean it will occur the entire 6-hour timeframe but during the 6-hour timeframe. Green is rain, blue is snow, pink is a mix or freezing rain, orange is ice.

This was between 5 am and 11 am.


This afternoon between 11 am and 5 pm


Between 5 pm and 11 pm


Here is something interesting a higher resolution model picking up on some moderate showers at 10 pm south of 160, it will be interesting to see how this model does on this.

Back to the snapshots this overnight tonight from 11 pm to 5am Monday. This indicates the weak cold front trying to pass and a wind change to the north northwest.


This between  5 am and 11 am Monday morning


Monday 11 am to 5 pm


And then it finally departs the area


It looks like it was a lot but when you look at the totals it is not that impressive at lower elevations here is the liquid.


And the snow


Most of that snow falls overnight with the change of wind direction which is not favorable for most of La Plata County.

There is still uncertainty with the week ahead, I hope to have a better handle on it tomorrow and Tuesday.
