We are gaining confidence that this storm is going to be a big one for a lot of Colorado.  The EURO has been rock solid with this system.  The projected track is displayed below:





The slow movement of this storm, will prolong the impact of this storm.  While a few details are uncertain, here is a look at snowfall projections based on the current forecast track.

Potential Snow Totals Friday through Saturday

24"+ Northern half of Teller County, Monument, Black Forest, Palmer Lake.

12-24" Denver, Most of Northern El Paso County, Peyton, Calhan, Rye, Beulah, Colorado City, and all of the Wets and Sangres...

6-12" Northern Half of Colorado Springs, Falcon, Ellicott, higher terrain west of Walsenburg and Trinidad

1-6" Southern Colorado Springs, Fountain, Pueblo, Pueblo West, Canon City, etc...

No Snow Accumulation: Southeast Plains

The back end of the weekend and early next week look drier and a lot warmer

Keep in mind that there is still time for the storm to change in track and intensity.  Any of those changes would result in the forecast changing.  The best advice we can give, is to stay very current with the forecast and be prepared for a change to Winter on Friday.   Be sure to visit all of our outlets this week (KKTV, MYKKTV, 11 News No-Wait Weather, as we'll provide regular updates on the development of this pending storm.

    Two and 1/2 feet! Has taken over four hours to get out of our driveway. It's 8 pm and it's still snowing! Our boys have built several snow forts and one igloo - which of course, has no top for snow ball throwing!I indicated our elevation above since there are many elevation changes in the forest - we've had it checked with an altimeter. Have a great evening!

    Shawn, we are still about 1 inch below normal as far as liquid moisture is concerned. COS is 23" below normal in the snow department. Still a ways to go... Thanks for checking in and have a good weekend.

    Cameron Shelton, i am curious, how much do houses/ real estate cost at your location? i am looking to see validation to my statement about " in order to locate into a place where the snows occurr, one has to have much money to afford housing in that location? it seems to be true, perhaps Ed is like i am , both of us are in our locatioins due to economic constraints or financial limitations that excludes us from being able to locate into say the Glenn Eagle to Monument areas/ Black Forest or Wood land Park ect. further more. here we go again looks like we got dry slotted, just like we did in March of '03 storm.. jon

    Branden, We have some sun in Briargate. Is it over, or is the lull before the next round?

    Its been snowing here since last night and we have 12" so far at 3 o'clock. Its stopped for now but it is supposed to start up again later this afternoon. The roads are terrible. Very slushy, icy, and snowpacked. Snow plows go by on the road but it was snowing so hard that it would be covered up in 15 minutes. The highway is slushy and icey and there are many stuck cars
