October 25th Storm Totals...Our next storm too!

Rye:  11"

Cuchara:  10"

Westcliffe:  7"

Beulah:  6"

Woodland Park:  5"

Florissant:  5"

Walsenburg:  5"

Monument:  5"

Black Forest:  3"

SW Colorado Springs: 3"

The above storm was pretty well forecast by the computer models and provided for pretty slick travel late Sunday night and early Monday morning.  Those totals for the southwest part of the area bring snow totals between 20 and 30 inches in the past week.  Pretty impressive for October...

Not only that, but another storm is set to arrive Wednesday and continue through Thursday.  Below is a look at where the storm willbe by late Wednesday.

 

At the very least, Wednesday will be a lot cooler, windier, and potentially snowy for some folks.

The track of this storm is still somewhat uncertain.  If it goes north, wind and colder temperatures will be the main impact here in Southern Colorado.  The northern part of the state would bear the brunt of the storm.  If it takes a more southern track, then significant snow, wind, and colder temperatures would impact us.  As the storm comes on shore tonight, our computer models will have a better handle on the overall track and impacts.

    If we were to see a couple of inches of snow I would be happy. I just want my children to see some good snow, just moved here in April from TN (military), but originially from NY and I haven't seen a snow storm for a while, so I wouldn't mind it at all. We aren't even in winter yet, so I am sure I will get to see some here in Colorado.

    Well our winter has started out with a bang!! We lived in Palmer Lake for years and got decent snow......but we definitely see more up here and we do love it!!! Is the general forecast for a snowier winter than average for Southern Colorado this year? The snow we've had has also been very wet and heavy so far too.

    Dang it. I hope we don't have another winter full of empty snow storms for the springs...just like the last two years. This is not starting out well for us...of course, Denver will get slammed...but we will get shafted.

    If the upper level low pressure system goes right over the top of Albuquerque and heads east to the Oklahoma and TX Panhandles. That is a pretty good track for us. This storm doesn't look to be concentric enough nor south enough, to give us a big storm. The upper low with this system moves up close to Pueblo and Colorado Springs by later tomorrow. Woodland Park to Limon and northward is what I've been telling people most of the day, with the highest totals hitting Denver, the adjacent foothills and northward to Cheyenne.

    I am not to sure when you know that its an Albuquerque Low or if its far south enough. I do that the weather channel and NOAA has issues a Winter Weather Advisory for the Colorado Springs area 80915. If you go on the NOAA forecast they have us getting a good amount of snow. So, really what is it. Snow or no snow.

    I have kind of a similar question.....when do you usually "know" that it's an Albuquerque Low or if it's not far south enough for that?

    I have been watching every weather station possible to see what is going to happen with this storm. The weather channel is stilling saying alot of snow for us. They have the low more to the south. Which is giving new mexico snow also. They said Flag Staff could be seeing there first snow of the season. Some news channels are giving accum. amounts while others arent. I am hoping for a good amount of snow. Anyone know any updates.
