Pointless Weather updates
The news is frenzied again about a big storm out this way and no doubt, somebody will get some moisture.
Denver is warning (since Weds or Thurs) of 6 -10 " maybe up to a foot of snow. It'll be wet and heavy so tree branches may be an issue.
Here in C/S, 4 to 8 " but it's come in a bit later than expected and so far, our temps and ground temp has it looking pretty mild. Will def know more by late morning or Sat night.
We've had a strong pattern of rains on/of over the past week. Need it for sure but I forget what a pain it is to make or change plans when outside activity is so taken for granted.

Winter Storm Warning in Northeastern Colorado
Active for next 18 hours · National Weather Service
This alert has been updated.
Posted 8 hours ago
AREAS OF HEAVY SNOW TONIGHT...
.A Spring storm system will bring snow to eastern Colorado tonight into Saturday. Periods of heavy snow are expected from the Front Range foothills across the Denver metro area and Palmer Divide and into southeastern Colorado and western Kansas. Further north the snow will be lighter, but several inches of wet snow are expected. Roads will become snow covered during the periods of heavier snow. Wet snow accumulating on trees that have already leafed out may also result in broken tree limbs and scattered power outages.
The snow will end from northwest to southeast on Saturday. There is some uncertainty on the speed the storm will exit, so heavier snow is possible on the eastern plains if the storm moves more slowly.
WINTER Storm Warning REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM MDT SATURDAY...
Timing: Widespread snow will develop by early evening. Periods of heavy snow are likely during the night. Lighter snow will continue on Saturday but road conditions should be improving.
Snow accumulations: 6 to 12 inches. The heaviest amounts will likely be in the southern part of the Denver metro area.
WIND/VISIBILITY...North winds 15 to 25 mph east of Interstate 25. Visibility may be reduced to a half mile or less in the heavier snow showers tonight.
IMPACTS: Wet snow may accumulate on already leafed out trees, resulting in broken tree limbs and scattered power outages. Some roads will become snow and slush covered tonight during the heavier snow showers. Road conditions should improve during the day Saturday.
