The heaviest precipitation set up generally east of 550 yesterday and last night. Some of the totals were incredible. Overall, the models did well and they projected where the heaviest rain would fall. As far as snow goes they did a horrible job with snow levels with the heavy snow falling at or above 10,000 feet.
Here are the liquid precipitation totals.
Mancos area and Dolores .35″
Telluride area .50-1.00″
Durango West, Hesperus, Rafter J area .60-.75″
Falls Creek .75″
Edgemont area .85-1.00″
Purgatory Base area 1.50-2.00″
Hermosa to Rockwood area .75-1.00″
Vallecito, Lemon, Tween area 1.40-2.00″
Forest Lakes 1.00″
Bayfield area .75-1.00″
Oxford, Ignacio area .75-1.00″
So no complaints on beneficial moisture.
Snow will come tonight with the colder air in place.
