Forecast news: Big wet snowflakes falling this morning at Gulch Manor #codrought #cowx

A beautiful snowfall this morning outside the windows here at Gulch Manor. I’m doing my celebration dance.

From the Fort Collins Coloradoan (Bobby Magill):

Fort Collins, which is under a winter storm warning through 5 p.m. Saturday, will see between 4 and 10 inches of snow before the storm clears the area, said meteorologist Judy Fossum of DayWeather in Cheyenne. High winds reaching 30 mph Saturday afternoon could blow some of the snow away. A blizzard warning is in effect for areas of southeast Wyoming…

That’s great news for the mountain snowpack, which is 66 percent of normal in the South Platte River Basin, which includes the Poudre River and Poudre Canyon, where more than a foot of snow is expected.
