Happy Valentine’s Storm!

Published 2/14/21 Sunday at 7:45 am

Although the parsimonious cold air has not really come into play as I had hoped, this has still been a pretty decent storm for most. A lot of beneficial moisture! Snow should wind down in most areas by noon but may linger in some areas until late this afternoon. Generally, 1 to 4 inches additional could accumulate. Telluride and Ouray could do a little better, we’ll see.

There is no model agreement on the next two storms, the first of which should start affecting the forecast area tomorrow afternoon. More on this in my afternoon Update.

Wolf Creek was already at 22 inches, 9 additional inches at Purgatory, and several reports of a foot in many locations at or above 7400 feet. As I type this I am getting reports of close to 20 inches in many of the locations such as upper Forest Lakes, Tween and Vallecito at or above 7,800.

Bring on the reports so I can share them in my next update. Thanks for following and supporting the site!
