Last weekend, a storm moved across southern and central Colorado bringing about a foot and a half of snow to the southern mountains and up to a foot for Vail and Snowmass. However, the current storm on Monday and Tuesday is nothing like the previous storm.

The current storm is moving much further south through Arizona and New Mexico, and is not gaining strength until it moves east of the Rocky Mountains. Because of this, snowfall totals from the two storms will be very different.

The graphic below shows the snow forecast for the Saturday/Sunday storm on the left and the current Monday/Tuesday storm on the right. While the actual snowfall won't match the forecast exactly, you can quickly see the difference between the two storms. The southern track of the current storm is why I was not very optimistic of deep snow for most of Colorado, and as of 9pm on Monday, this pessimistic forecast is (sadly) coming true. The next storm should arrive on Sunday/Monday. Until then, go work on your tan!
