Had a brief thunderstorm but no measurable rain here today. Water year total will go down as 14.11" at my place, with 10.50" at the airport. 

ECMWF ensemble mean of about 3" of rain over the next 2 weeks, so should be plenty wet. Seeing more members show snow too but not a real strong signal yet.

Just drove highway 40 between Rabbit Ears and Kremmling. The fire is over the mountain top, but so big that the sky is glowing. This isn't the best pic since I used my cell phone, but it shows the smoke in the sky glowing.

You have another camera other than your phone?    I think pretty much every pic on here is taken by a phone (other than Tyler's prorfessional photos).

Crazy, I did that same drive this weekend since we went to Steamboat Springs. The fire looked a lot bigger on Sunday.

Model consensus is growing for a prolonged cool and probably stormy period here starting in about 6 days. FV3 showed a major snowstorm here 10/7-10/8.

I told my wife to be prepared for cold and snow... thereby jinxing it.    It will now be in the 80s.    Sorry about that.    :)

.54" on the day at my place and still raining, but should be wrapping up for tonight soon. More showers/storms tomorrow are likely.

Nice. Looks like plenty more opportunity for precip for your area over the next week.

 

Models have me right on the edge of a big storm early next week...just need it to develop a bit further south and could see the first snowstorm of the season.

 

EDIT: 12z models have definitely moved towards the big storm scenario, especially the CMC.

I ended up with .66" yesterday. Looks like more thunderstorms tonight and tomorrow morning, and again Thursday night into Friday. No real end in sight either; a welcome change!

Hopefully you can get some snow. I will be close to some rain/snow mix next week if things work out right but not seeing any signs of any big events just yet.

Looking like a pretty decent shot of accumulating snow here tonight. Preceding the switch over to snow the rain looks to be really heavy later this afternoon. Looking like nearly an inch of precipitation by tomorrow morning.

 

The amount of snowfall is going to be dependent on how quickly the cold air moves in but anything between 1-5" of snow seems possible.

 

Chilly this morning as well, dropped down to 26F. Currently 33F.


Cold Season 2018/19:

Total snowfall: 11.0"
Highest daily snowfall: 7.0"

Highest snow depth: 7.0"

Coldest high: 36.1º
Coldest low: 18.0º

Number of subzero days: 0

Canadian continues to give me a heavy and extended rain to snow storm Sunday night through Tuesday morning, while the GFS and FV3 continue to show a much smaller storm that mostly just misses to the north. The Euro seems like a delayed blend from what I can tell without seeing the precip maps.

Thanks, Tim! So just an inch or two here, while the foothills get buried. Looks wetter like the CMC but not as cold, as I was suspecting.

Seems like the models are playing catch up to the amount of cold air already over the region. It's only 37.6F currently a little past the noon hour when we were forecast to be near 50F right now. Also already seeing quite a bit of rain which was also not modeled.

 

The new 12z ECMWF looks a bit colder and even wetter for tonight. Starting to think I'll see a pretty significant early fall snowstorm here tonight now. 2-6" of snowfall seems like a real possibility.

Took a shot before darkness fell. Really heavy snow continuing and sticking to even the paved surfaces now.

 

Up to about an inch already. Down to 32F.

We get plenty of duds here but tonight has not been one of them. The streak of below average temps has been pretty unique when looking at the rest of the country though. We’ve also just been really lucky.

Yesterday ended up with 1.10" between the the several rounds of storms, and 2.09" for the last 4 days. Should be dry till Saturday afternoon now.

Yesterday ended up with 1.10" between the the several rounds of storms, and 2.09" for the last 4 days. Should be dry till Saturday afternoon now.

 

Wow, that's awesome. I'll be happy with half that much over the next 4-5 days.

 

Temps have fallen from the low 70s to low 50s this afternoon with a strong cold front and some showers. May not get above 60 again for quite some time. GFS has joined the other models in showing a prolonged precip event early next week.

I like your term "falliage" for fall foliage! I have never thought of that one before.

Been very chilly here for the first week of October. High temps haven't been above the 40s since last Wednesday and that theme looks to continue through Friday of next week. Have also seen about 1.25" of rain/snow in that same period.

 

At some point Tues/Wed was looking like a significant snowstorm but that is looking less likely now. Models now show mainly just some light snow showers and cold temps with highs dropping into the 30's.


Cold Season 2018/19:

Total snowfall: 11.0"
Highest daily snowfall: 7.0"

Highest snow depth: 7.0"

Coldest high: 36.1º
Coldest low: 18.0º

Number of subzero days: 0

My wife just arrived in Denver... she does not want to see snow and only brought a light jacket despite my advice.    I hope it snows there.   :)

Saw like 3 flakes this morning, that's it so far. Very chilly, though. Drizzle most the day and still haven't hit 40.

 

Tomorrow should be similar.

Temp has ranged between 36 and 39 for the past 36 hours, and looks like that will continue through tomorrow as well. Fairly unusual.

Text from my wife about an hour ago... "its freezing cold here and I need a warmer jacket".

 

I guess she has to walk between her hotel and the convention center and also to restaurants.

Heavy rain moving into SLC this evening. Could get up to an inch or so if the HRRR is correct.

Really cold and raw day here today with snow flurries around most of the day but never accumulated. We had 20-35mph easterly winds all day which kept the wind chill values in the 20's most of the day. Definitely did not feel anything like early October.

 

The warmup keeps getting pushed back now as well. Models are even hinting at an even colder airmass moving in on Saturday now with snowfall.

1.15" at my house with the storm, and 3.25" for the month.

Some places in SLC had about 2" of rain last night. Also saw temps fell to 33F in the upper benches so probably some wet snow up there.

Some snow showers this morning in Denver metro as I hit the road for Santa Fe. Looks like they've continued off and on throughout the day, another high in the 30s.

 

Much different story here in Santa Fe, where it's 60 and mostly sunny.

Looks to shut down now with dry weather for a while, but already well above normal for the month! Some of that cold air that will blast you guys may sneak in here Sunday-Monday.

High of just 36F here today with a flurry storm throughout the day. Didn't amount to anything really except for blowing around a bit on the roads this morning.

 

Still on for a strong cold front to push through here Friday night. Snowfall is looking light, maybe an inch or two at this point.
