February 8th Snowfall Totals (Brian Bledsoe)

Forecast worked out pretty well for this storm.  It has been a pretty long duration event, and our original totals did well.  We put out 2 to 6" for Colorado Springs and Pueblo on Saturday night, for Sunday through Monday night.  And obviously we forecasted 10 to 20" amounts for the southern mountains. By no means was this an easy storm to forecast, but we didn't have the north wind to kill the snow between Colorado Springs and Pueblo.  Not having that to deal with, at least made the forecast a little easier.  Light upslope and very cold air, usually will produce good snow for some areas that usually get bypassed by other storms( Julio and Ed).  Snow totals will likely change a little bit tonight, but as of 10pm tonight, here is a preliminary look at totals from this latest snow:

19"  CUCHARA

12"  MOFFAT

9"    CRESTONE

6"    TRINIDAD

6"    SECURITY

6"    FOUNTAIN

5"    PUEBLO WEST

5"    BEULAH & RYE

2-3" Northeast CO Springs, 4"  CO Springs Airport, 7" Broadmoor Area

5"    FOWLER

4.5"    PUEBLO

4"    MONUMENT

3"    CANON CITY

3"    CALHAN

3"    FALCON

3"    ALAMOSA

Some of the southern areas will likely add a little more to those totals the rest of tonight, but the accumulating snow is pretty much done in El Paso County.  If anyone has new information, don't hesitate to post your total.  Thanks!
