...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN ALBUQUERQUE HAS ISSUED A WINTER
STORM WATCH...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH AT LEAST
A FEW RAIN SHOWERS AND PERHAPS A THUNDERSTORM OR TWO WILL DEVELOP
ACROSS NORTHERN NEW MEXICO DURING THE EVENING. PRECIPITATION WILL
INCREASE SIGNIFICANTLY AFTER MIDNIGHT AND STILL FURTHER TUESDAY
MORNING WITH SNOW LEVELS FALLING THROUGH THAT PERIOD. AS THIS SYSTEM
HAS YET TO DEVELOP...THERE IS NO PAST HISTORY WITH THIS SYSTEM
WHICH MAKES PINPOINTING SNOW ACCUMULATIONS AT THIS TIME QUITE
DIFFICULT. BUT AT LEAST 4 TO 8 INCHES GENERALLY ABOVE 7500 SEEMS
POSSIBLE ACROSS NORTHERN NEW MEXICO THROUGH TUESDAY WITH POSSIBLY
UP TO 10 OR 12 INCHES ON THE HIGHER PEAKS. LESSER AMOUNTS WILL
FALL BETWEEN 6000 AND 7500 FEET WITH MORE RAIN THAN SNOW DOWN LOWER.
Well, the storm hit Wyoming, Montana, Utah and now New Mexico...
What about Colorado?
Only a dusting?
FWIW this is a different storm than the one that hit the Northern Rockies this weekend. We got a little dusting from that one but nothing like the stuff that UT, MT and WY got.
The only bad part about this last storm is that -I think- it missed Wolf Creek, which is scheduled to open Nov. 7.
Edit: this morning as I was checking the webcam every 5 minutes I thought that they should add another camera with a different view. Apparentely, I have telekinetic powers: http://www.skitaos.org/mountain/webcamimage.php
