As of 7pm MT Sunday snow continues to fall across parts of southern and southeastern Colorado.
In some areas, snow fell at a very fast rate. Here are some of the snow totals reported in to the National Weather Service through 6:45pm Sunday.
7 miles ESE Texas Creek: 4.3"
Pueblo (National Weather Service Office): 4.0"
5 miles west of Westcliffe: 4.0"
3 miles north of Pueblo Reservoir: 3.5"
3 miles SW of Pueblo: 3.5"
1 mile SSW of Rye: 3.4"
3 miles SSW of Pueblo: 3.0"
2 miles SE of Penrose: 2.0"
6 miles E of Monument: 1.0"
The latest high-resolution computer projections suggest that snow should come to an end in Colorado Springs by 1am and by 3am in Pueblo. Until then, additional snow is still possible. It looks like a couple more inches of snow will be possible across the area. See previous article concerning snow projections.
Temperatures will be cold through the overnight. Lows will be in the teens to lower 20°s. Because of this, the water from melting snow on roadways could refreeze. Be careful on your way to work and school in the morning! (Colorado Springs: 18° | Pueblo: 20°)
Early morning clouds should give way to breaks in the clouds by early Monday afternoon. Winds will also remain brisk in the morning, easing through the day. Temperatures will remain on the cool side. Highs will be in the 30°s and 40°s. (Colorado Springs: 39° | Pueblo: 43°)
RECORD SETTING SNOW
The National Weather Service, located at the Pueblo airport, officially measured 4.0" of snow as of 5:55pm Sunday. This sets a new one-day snow total for this date. The previous record was 3.3" in 1945.
ANOTHER CHANCE AT SNOW
Medium-range computer models continue to hint at another storm that could bring rain and/or snow to Colorado later this week. Timing is still up in the air, but it looks like it could start to show its affects late Wednesday evening and continue through Thursday. Stay tuned! - Meteorologist John Dissauer
