It’s not over Pagosa Springs!

3-13-21: 4:30pm update:

Daytime snows are always tricky to measure this time of the year when temps are near freezing and the sun is high enough to melt snow quickly. Based on my liquid measurement of 0.02 I would estimate that we have had about a quarter of an inch of snow so far at our home about a mile north of Hatcher Lake. Despite a slow start to this storm (the low pressure decided to spend some extra time in Las Vegas!), Wolf Creek recorded 4 inches so far today, with snow continuing as I type.

Current location of our low pressure as of 3:30pm.

Our low pressure will continue to move through our area over the next 24 hours, with the brunt of the moisture stacking up snow in the front range (as forecast). As I type this post (3:30pm) the low is centered over the Four Corners and slowly moving east. There is a break in the sky right now, but we will continue to see off/on snow showers and a few heavier rounds for the next twenty four hours. This low is currently spawning some tornadic thunderstorms over the Texas Panhandle.

Here is the latest NWS Blend of Models snow forecast through Monday.

For the next twenty four hours I think the valley could see 1-2 inches of snow and 2-4 inches of snow for those of us living closer to the mountains. For Wolf Creek, another 5-10 inches is possible which is why our current advisories and Winter Storm Watches will remain in effect through Sunday.

Another low pressure (weaker) will track through our area on Monday night and Tuesday. Shawn takes over tomorrow but he wanted to let you guys know that he thinks we could see 1-3 inches of snow for the valley and 4-8 inches of snow for Wolf Creek.

Current watches and advisories through Sunday afternoon.

Temperatures over the next 24 hours will trend lower than normal with lows in the lower teens and highs in the 30’s.
