Looking like quite the storm rolling in this week:

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN DENVER HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM
WATCH...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY
AFTERNOON.

* TIMING...SNOW WILL DEVELOP EARLY TUESDAY MORNING AND CONTINUE
THROUGH WEDNESDAY.

* SNOW ACCUMULATIONS...SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 8 TO 20 INCHES OF
SNOW IS POSSIBLE BY LATE WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. THE HEAVIER
AMOUNTS CAN BE EXPECTED ON HIGHER WEST FACING SLOPES WITH LOWER
AMOUNTS IN THE HIGH VALLEYS.

* WIND/VISIBILITY...SOUTHWEST WINDS OF 20 TO 30 MPH WITH GUSTS UP
TO 45 MPH WILL CREATE BLOWING SNOW AND REDUCED VISIBILITIES OVER
THE MOUNTAIN PASSES.

* IMPACTS...WINTER DRIVING CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED OVER THE
MOUNTAINS WITH ICY AND SNOWPACKED ROADWAYS. CHAINS REQUIREMENTS
AND ROAD CLOSURES WILL BECOME A POSSIBILITY DURING THE WINTRY

From NOAA GJT:

FEET OF SNOW ARE POSSIBLE IN THE
CENTRAL MOUNTAINS THAT COULD HAVE REGIONAL IMPACTS INTO THE
SUMMER OF 2014. ALSO IF SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOWFALL ACCUMULATES IN
MOST VALLEYS AS WE ARE EXPECTING...STRONG INVERSIONS COULD FORM
AND PERSISTS FOR SEVERAL WEEKS OR EVEN MONTHS. THIS COULD HAVE A
MAJOR IMPACT ON TEMPERATURES FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WINTER.

Northern mountains didn't get as much as they were expecting but hopefully some heavy stuff moves through today. I saw CB's snow stake this morning, have fun out there today ajkagy.

unfortunately I have to work today, but hoping to at least get out for a few turns in the afternoon afterward. What a great start to the season so far, hard to believe it's only the first week of December.
