Snow Forecasts Through Saturday Night

12/30/21 Thursday 3:40 pm

I dug a little deeper into the recent high-resolution models regarding jet placement. This could lead to higher totals and upside surprises for the following areas: Bayfield, Ignacio, Aztec, Bloomington, and Arboles, and all of Archuleta County. I have not factored that into my snow totals.

Here is my snow forecast. These totals are valid from 5 am Thursday through Saturday night.
