December 2nd & 3rd, 2009 Arctic Air and Snow Update...

Another ripple of energy will move through overnight and Thursday morning, meaning a little more light snow for some areas.  As you can see below, northern locations likely won't see any heavy snow.  Some areas in west and southwest Colorado Springs could see a little more.


The Southern I-25 Corridor, Wet and Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely bear the brunt of this system.  The snow will be light and fluffy, but will still cause slick roads where it accumulates in a good fashion.  Isolated 10" amounts will be possible west of Walsenburg and Trinidad.


Thursday will be the coldest day, as the core of the Arctic Air slides across our area.  Beyond Thursday, it does look to retreat a bit and give us "decent" weather for Friday and Saturday.

    i just had to throw that one in to see how you all would react, of course it is a ' pun' but if it were possible that the ' hill was located streched out from the Broadmoor out to Ellicot, that would then put all of this city in the same north wind upslope that Denver to Caslte rock gets hence you; we'd all get those double digit snow events here, but the city was badly located in 1st place. i retired my snow shovel & am planting 'desert theme gardens here, including miniture ones in these troughs made from cement/peatmoss/perlite, they are neat. just don't let your cat get too close to cactus. other interesting plants as well, have to save up enough money to take trips up to the ski areas to see the snow, take photos of it, then hang the photos on the wall, or with digitals, can feed them into a photo 'player' those kind you can find at office max. those are neat. close the window blinds & turn that on, then you can see the snow all the time... jon

    Jeannine, We are in for a huge, heaping, nasty.......dusting of snow. Book it. Oh, and everybody quit complaining about everything! We sure don't want to upset Carlos. After all, blogs are for all positive talk all the time! Bleh.

    So what do people think about the next storm coming through, giving us chances of snow until Tuesday. Is it a good snow storm, with everyone getting a chance to get some snow, or are we going to get missed again and get nothing. Just wondering, I just moved here in April and why is it that all the snow storms that we have seen like miss Colorado Springs all together but dump a huge amount of snow everywhere else.

    HeeHee! That's why we love it up here above Rye!! Yes, we did get below zero and our woodstove is working overtime! But we also got another 8" of snow and are just lovin' this winter so far!! My hubby and I both have grown up in Colorado.....and we're used to the ups and downs of snowy winters! But we definitely have enjoyed more consistent snowfall both in Palmer Lake and here out of all the Colorado locations we've lived!! Anyway....just a howdy and thanks for the weather blog!!

    Carlos, I certainly didn't mean to offend anyone. However, I thought a blog is a place where people can express their opinions, whether you agree with them or not. I would love to have more snow than what we get. Moving isn't an option for me. I'm not the only one who get on here and complains.

    We always get snow--enough to make the roads really slick and we never see a plow or sand--not even on the bus route.

    Julio, for two years now I have read your comments and all you do is complain about the lack of snow. Maybe you should move to another location where they have colder temps and more snow. You have helped this blog turn into a venue to whine. Thanks Sarah, Branden, and Brian for the job you do with reporting the Weather.

    I grew up in El Paso, TX. They got snow this week! Even more than we did! I think most of Texas is getting snow this week.
