Wednesday is looking stupid good. Likely to be decent leftovers on Thursday too because it's gonna be bitter cold and should keep most people home.

Highly likely. I still haven't seen what kind of snow totals the Front Range cities and foothills should be expecting, but I'd expect snowpacked roads the whole way. The drive back will probably be dicey too as the heavy snow is supposed to continue into Wednesday afternoon. I'm planning on putting in a pretty full day Wednesday, then depending on how things are, I might consider a half day Thursday morning.

Joel is saying up to 18 inches out of this storm. Brecks sitting in the gray bird with clouds surrounding some of the peaks right now.

Yep, he's pretty much saying 10-18" across the board. As always with an "across the board" storm, there's gonna be a lot of butthurt and a lot of stoke. There's gonna be some mountains that get shafted and there's probably gonna be a couple of spots that get major dumpage. I always get leery when the forecast is saying good snow for all mountains AND along the Front Range. That very rarely holds true. We shall see...

Really warm with crazy wind in the foothills today. Chinook winds suck. The snow eater!!!

So much for being really warm. Still crazy windy, but temps are dropping quick. Looks like the drive up Wednesday will be a BITCH. Here's the NOAA forecast for Evergreen:


Tonight: A 20 percent chance of snow after 11pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 28. Very windy, with a west wind 38 to 43 mph decreasing to 30 to 35 mph after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 70 mph.

Tuesday: A 50 percent chance of snow. Increasing clouds, with a temperature rising to near 34 by 11am, then falling to around 22 during the remainder of the day. Breezy, with a west wind 8 to 17 mph becoming northeast in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

Tuesday Night: Snow. Low around 6. Wind chill values as low as -3. East northeast wind 5 to 8 mph becoming south in the evening. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of 6 to 10 inches possible.

Wednesday: Snow. High near 12. Wind chill values as low as -5. East southeast wind 5 to 7 mph becoming calm in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 3 to 7 inches possible.


So, it looks like the foothills will be looking at 10-20". I-70 gonna be a shit show... if it's even open.

I am seriously thinking about hooky Thursday. Especially if this storm delivers.
