Wednesday Mid Morning Update

1/18/23 Wednesday 10:

In case you missed my last post I will not be able to finalize all of the totals today, my goal is sometime tomorrow. I have had some questions about how this season compares to the famous 2018-2019 winter. I will be talking more about that, I had a theory going into the season that I wished I would have talked about earlier but I wanted to see how it played out. Anyway, in my neighborhood, we are already at 50% of the 2018-2019 season total. We already have a substantially higher total so far than what we had on January 18th, 2019.

The latest surface map shows the shortwave has moved east but it has not crossed Wolf Creek Pass. Speaking of Wolf Creek Pass, it just opened at 10:05 am. I have no information on the other passes yet. The Wolf Creek closure was not displayed on the CDOT website this morning. This was beyond the control of our local office.

I will continue to distribute information as I get it. I have a couple of things going on today outside of DWG HQ,  but I don’t expect a lot to happen today except Wolf Creek and up north. The snow will continue to pile in northern portions of the forecast area– it is still dumping in Telluride, and moderate to light snow will continue at Wolf Creek.

I will take a look at Friday’s storm this afternoon, at this point, it looks like a very quick mover with very little moisture. Thanks for following and supporting the site!
