Where The Storm Goes...

The storm that we've been following for the past few days, looks like it is going to go too far north to have a huge impact on Southern Colorado.  The graphic below shows the storm moving over Colorado tomorrow, which is a less than ideal track to get heavy snow this far south.

With that track, areas from Monument northward to Cheyenne will be hit the hardest.  I actually think Denver to Cheyenne will have get the bullseye from this storm.  At least the way it looks right now...

Here in Southern Colorado, the graphics below show you what we are thinking.

Again, the farther north you live, the worse the weather looks.  We'll continue to follow this storm closely and update you on any changes in the forecast.  However, that track has to come farther south for there to be any substantial changes.  My gut says that won't happen...

    Sigh....got about an inch today...if that. Oh well. Maybe the next one will hit the rest of colorado springs. C'mon El Nino! Show your stuff like 2006!

    To continue...lol....it is all about keeping your children safe....either on the road in a bus...or waiting in the weather at the bus stop. Their safety and well being is the first priority.

    I live in Coaldale and we are getting pounded, we have about 11 inches of snow so far and still snowing.

    As a bus driver for D20, I say kudos to those who make the decision on whether or not to close school...not because I wanted a day off...I LOVE my job! That decision was made to keep your children safe. Our supervisors go out and drive those roads in the wee hours of the morning so that they can assess the road conditions. Sometimes they must base their decision on what is supposed to happen weather wise. The bottom line is that it is all ab

    Jessie, please keep in mind they were trying to keep your children safe. The weather is bad, and D49 is NOT only Falcon. As a D20 parent, I am so thankful they anticipated the snow and did not have our children out. Brian, kudos to you for so politely responding.

    As usual, Monument is getting pounded as it has been snowing hard here most of the day. We have about 6 inches so far.

    D49 was most likely closed since part of BF is in D49 and the roads are not in the best shape up there. Big difference from Falcon and Black Forest just 5 miles north on Meridian Road. Anyone that has lived he for awhile knows you can go a mile and the conditions can change a great deal which is the case with this storm.

    Jesse, last night I said that this was not going to be a big storm for CO Springs, Falcon, Fountain, Ellicott, Rush, etc. That is why I put out a Trace to 3" for those areas and stressed to keep the range in mind. Could see as little as a Trace/Dusting, could see as much as 3". My graphics above clearly show that you should not have expected big snow if you live in Falcon. I have no idea why they cancelled school for D-49, because our forecast hasn't changed a bit since 4pm yesterday afternoon. Thanks for reading our blog.

    Here where I am we have been having a little bit of snow showers but they are on and off, and right now just a little on the grass and some of my driveway. I don't know why it is not sticking though since it is cold. I know I couldn't believe they closed D49, my daughter in pre school was mad LOL. Now the storm isn't over so who knows. I heard that snow is really hard to predict and sometimes doesn't show up on radar. Can anyone tell me if that is true or not. I am jealous that everyone else is getting snow but us.

    Okay. Now it is east of us, west of us, north of us, and south of us. What gives? Why are we gettting nothing in this one spot on the east side of CS/Falcon? The cancelled school for this? Geeze.
