Winter was ushered in with a bang this morning in Idaho Falls with a temp of 10 and wind gusts to 45 mph (wind chill around -12). Moderate snow at the same time led to a period of blizzard conditions.

Of note as well Pocatello (PIH) tied their all-time October low (7 degrees) yesterday *without* snow cover. With today's snowfall and winds going light overnight tonight, they'll almost certainly go below zero and potentially break their former October record low by 8-10 degrees!

Snow adds moisture to the air. Dry nights can get colder.

DEN hit 3 this morning, which ties the monthly record. They should easily break that tonight/tomorrow, unless winds really pick up.

They're currently 17 under full sunshine, at 2 pm on October 30. Unreal.

Here are the ones I know of, but I'm sure there are a lot more:

Rawlins Wyoming = -20

Lander = -10

Buffalo Wyoming = -3

Greybull = 6

 

Walden Colorado = -13

Craig Colorado = -9 

Grand Junction Colorado = 7

 

Randolph Utah = -23

Deer Creek Dam Utah = 3

Pineview Dam Utah = 2

Logan Radio Utah = 4
Hans Flat Utah = 6

Zion National Park Utah = 13

Salt Lake City Utah = 14

Capitol Reef National Park Utah = 15

Bullfrog Utah = 23

 

Island Park Idaho = -19

The official high in Craig was only 11.  I believe the previous lowest high temperature was 18.

 

It's already -8 (8:20 PM), so unless the wind picks up or something the impressive monthly record that was set this morning is going to be broken.  

 

We're a full 16 degrees colder than the same time last night.   If the temperature continues to drop, we could make it into the -20s.

Check out State Summary for Alaska today.    The coldest place in Alaska today was 13.   The warmest was 52.  That also means that the high temperature here in Craig was colder than the lowest temperature in Alaska.

Colorado Springs' high of 13 was also a record cold max.  I assume there was probably more too.

It was -14 again at the Bozeman Airport yesterday morning. Coldest October on record already a lock there. Record keeping began in 1941.

 

It looks like the Bozeman MSU station will go down as the 3rd coldest October on record behind 1919 and just behind 1925.

The breeze picked up at night so the temperature didn't drop below -12 at the official station.   It was still the October record though.

Snowing here again... Expecting 1-3" tonight. Roads didn't even have a chance to melt off with all the cold. In fact, we haven't been above freezing since Saturday early morning.

 

Looks like we'll get a nice warmup this weekend though.

Still solid snow cover around the neighborhood, with temps remaining well below normal. Low 40s this afternoon, which is the warmest day this week.

 

Been really weird to experience what would be a cold week in mid winter, in late October/early November. I've never seen frozen ponds this early.

Getting absolutely slammed here right now with post frontal snow banding. Very heavy snow squall moving through with temps already dropping through the teens.

First time the airport has actually reported heavy snow this season if I’m not mistaken.

Ended up with a 23F/3F day here today. Forecast high was nearly 40 degrees so the models really underestimated the depth of the cold air with this little clipper. Currently 14F.

 

Looks like we warm to around average for the rest of the week with a few snow showers tomorrow night.

Picked up 2" of snowfall here last night with the front. Been a pretty boring couple of weeks up until then. Currently 28F.

 

Big pattern change coming Sunday of course. Cold is a given, snow amounts are all over the place right now so we'll see what happens there. Either way, below zero temps look to return by later next week.

Woke up to 4" on the ground. 6.5" so far for the month, with another shot at snow early next week. 

 

Already up to 25" for the season, the most I've had to date since 2009.

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Denver CO
506 AM MST Mon Nov 25 2019

...STRONG WINTER STORM APPROACHING NORTHERN COLORADO...

.A winter storm will strengthen as it moves over the mountains
and across northeastern Colorado and neighboring states tonight
into Tuesday. A large area of heavy snow is likely from the
northern Colorado and southern Wyoming mountains eastward into
western Nebraska and northwest Kansas. The heavy snow will begin
in the northern mountains of Colorado this afternoon and spread
southeast to the Fort Collins and Denver area during the evening,
and then across the rest of northeast Colorado overnight. The snow
will end from west to east during the day Tuesday. The heaviest
snow is expected tonight in areas north and northwest of Denver,
and Tuesday morning from Denver eastward across the plains and in
the foothills west and southwest of Denver.

This storm will cause significant travel difficulties due to the
amount of snowfall. A widespread area with a foot or more of snow
is expected from the Denver metro area and highway 36 on the
plains northward into Wyoming and the Nebraska panhandle.
Conditions will deteriorate Monday evening from Denver northward
and overnight on the eastern plains. The worst conditions will be
Tuesday morning, when very heavy snow is likely around Denver and
winds will be increasing on the plains. Winds will increase on
Tuesday, with gusts to 30 mph near the mountains and 40 mph on the
plains. There will be some drifting of snow in rural areas, and
near blizzard conditions are possible east of Fort Morgan and
Deer Trail during the day Tuesday. Conditions will improve from
west to east Tuesday afternoon as the snow moves eastward and
winds decrease late in the day.

People planning travel in northeastern Colorado tonight or
Tuesday should consider traveling today or waiting until the storm
passes. Travel may become impossible across the I-25 urban
corridor and across the plains from I-70 northward by Tuesday
morning, including unplowed city streets with a foot of new snow
on them. You should have what you need for a day at home on
Tuesday.

Snow started up around 4 pm, got about an 1" by 6, then a lull.

 

Now it's restarted up in earnest...expecting 1-2" hour rates in heavy banding for much of the overnight period.

I'm up in Canmore, AB this week but it looks like 1-2" fell overnight in Bozeman.

 

This isn't going to be a great pattern for Bozeman (too much mtn precip shadow) but the Thursday/Friday period looks to still bring 3-6", possibly more.

Total snowfall: 53.0"

Highest daily snowfall: 12.0"

Highest snow depth: 15.0"

Snow is winding down now, but it looks like 2-3' for the foothills west of Boulder and Fort Collins. Several stations in Boulder itself reported 20-22".

 

I'm right at a foot. Looks like 8-16" ended up being a good call for most of Denver metro.
