 The storm will continue to track away from Southern Colorado, but not before hammering the Southeast Plains on Friday.  That's where the worst weather will reside on Friday.  As we head into Friday night, the storm will move far enough east that conditions will improve over the Southeast Plains.  Much needed moisture, even if the blizzard caused a few problems.

    We are between Hwy 50 west of Canon City and Westcliffe and have received 7-8 inches of snow so far with it still coming down lightly this morning. Thank heavens not a lot of wind. For our area we see what the Wet Mountains are going to get and then around Canon City and usually get something in between. Brian I lived in the Limon area years ago and appreciate your knowledge and information of/for the rural areas.

    10:35pm Thursday and Pueblo is getting nailed! There are 3 foot drifts in my yard! If this continues overnight, it may beat the blizzard of 97! For one thing the winds are stronger and this system is much colder. We shall see tomorrow. Some much needed moisture finally :-)

    Thanks Mary Lou! We cover a huge area, and try to serve everyone. The blizzard will continue for you folks through tomorrow, as the storm wraps up in the Texas Panhandle. Amounts over a foot are likely for you guys. Stay safe and warm and thanks for reading our blog.

    my location, at 9:15 have failed to reach even the predicted minimum of 3in out of this paltry- poor excuse of a storm, this place is impossible to ever exceed 3 inches it seems, i wonder about Security, Widefield, & Fountain - these locations also excellent canidates for a snow lover's nightmare ? i think sometime in past history a Ute indian chief who dwelt here must have been named chief never snows. jon

    I'm thinking you nailed this one on the head! It's snowin' and blowin' like crazy here. I'm just glad that you made us aware of this one in ample time to take care of livestock and such this go around. In 2006/07 we were highly unprepared, but I think were good to go this time!

    Wow! Are you guys ever happy? Julio, David, Matt you guys live in the wrong place. You need to move to the top of Wolf Creek or Red Mountain it snows a lot there and then we wouldn't have to see your poor me so little snow gripes on this blog!

    Not really a blizzard, I'm thinking back to like three years ago when we were snowed in half the winter, or 97 when the city was shut down for days....but it's more snow that we have gotten this entire winter, so enjoy it! You were right about the wind, I live at the top of a culdesac, the south end of it, and I've got 2 foot drifts in my driveway and backyard by my fence....

    That's why our range is 3 to 8 inches for the southern half of El Paso County. Heavy snow band is occurring from south of Ellicott to just south of Fountain. Some areas seeing heavy snow, others just light snow. That's why we forecast the range guys, because rarely does everyone get similar amounts. Thanks for reading our blog.
