Woke up to 3-4" of wet, heavy snow this morning. Moderate to heavy snow continuing, should start winding down around noon. Looks like the 4-7" will end up as a good call by the NWS most places.

Any tree damage around your area? Looks like a good snow event!

Yeah, definitely some big branches down here in Boulder. Not as bad as the May storm, though.

How much did you end up with? I saw DEN only recored 2.8" but the Boulder area recorded 6". It looked like the Boulder area was the big winner.

Yeah, that's pretty normal. DEN is almost always on the low end for the metro area, and Boulder usually on the high end.

 

4" or so in my backyard. I was at work all day so I might have had a bit more than that before some melting in the afternoon. As a reference, my house is about 15 miles from Boulder and about 20 miles from DIA.

Rapidly melting already? Might as well not bothered to fall. :)

Kidding aside... beautiful pics. The air looks unusually clear and clean as well.

They are all actually different angles on the Flatirons, but the last one is the classic northern view from Chautauqua Park in Boulder.

Definitely. Nothing like a clear day right after a snowfall to bring out the deep blues in the sky.

I tried to climb Mount Sniktau after work, but ran out of light before reaching the summit. Here us a view east just before sunset. After the sun went down, it got cold quickly, but I guess that's expected at 13,000 feet.

Expecting about 1-3" here tonight as the front moves through. Out ahead of the front I've been getting winds gusting over 30mph and temps in the low 60's. Going to be quite the temp drop here in an hour or so!

 

Will be fun to see what kind of hourly drop I'll see.

From 60F at 5pm down to 45F at 6pm. 15 degree drop in an hour, not bad!

 

Down to 36F here now and beginning to changeover.

Still looking at my first chance of accumulating snow on Saturday, but if it happens it won't be much. ECMWF has been consistent showing about 1" at my house...so we will see.

Picked up 2.5" here overnight while recording a low of 24F.

 

It's breathtaking out there this morning with the clouds clearing and the fresh snow! Few pics I took at home and on the way into work.

8.5" as of this morning but we're getting dumped on pretty good right now so I'll probably add another inch or two to that total by days end.

Nice today, mid 50s and sunny. Saturday looks chilly still with 700 mb temps falling to -12C, but with little moisture it may just bring some flurries to a dusting. 

A stronger storm may arrive next weekend.

Pretty run of the mill but pleasant weather here this week. Strong, downsloping winds develop today with temps climbing up to around 70F.

 

Cold front moves in Friday afternoon which will likely turn the rain to snow by Friday evening. We'll possibly see some light accumulations by Saturday morning before a ridge quickly develops raising temps to above normal once again.

The storm on Saturday ended up being weak with no snow, or at least nothing that stuck since it was mostly while I was sleeping. The storm next weekend is also quite watered down at this point. Probably just pleasant fall weather for a while with limited action for now.

It was crazy warm here today. Pulled off a 74F/57F day with strong downsloping winds all day and night. Looking forward to tomorrow afternoons cold front that will drop the temps back into the 30's by late afternoon. Should see some snow fly but unlikely to see much accumulation, if any.

 

Next week is beginning to look a little more interesting (cold/snowy), especially as the week progresses.

Very dynamic cold front just moved through here. Had wind gusts up over 40mph and a very sharp temperature drop. From 58F at 3pm down to 36F at 4pm. 22F drop in just one hour during the afternoon hours!

Currently getting very heavy wet snow at 32F.

Ended up with an 1.5" of wet snow with yesterdays front. Starkly cooler today, currently 34F.

 

Unsettled pattern for the rest of the weekend with strong downsloping winds forecasted once again Tue/Wed and warming temps. ECMWF continues to show a very strong cold front moving through Wednesday night bringing a sharp temperature drop and possibly my first significant accumulating snowfall of the season.
