If your favorite area isn't listed, no worries – there's a solution!

We have an AMAZING Snow Depth map in our other app called OpenSummit. It looks like this.

You can zoom in to view the snow depth for any area here in Colorado or across the United States and southern Canada.

The map is available via the OpenSummit website and the OpenSummit mobile apps. Choose the "Snow Depth" map overlay and zoom around to your heart's content.

The Snow Depth map is the best estimate available from a high-resolution snow model run by NOAA. The model does use on-the-ground observations but also "guesses" about snowfall where there are no on-the-ground observations. So reality can be a little different from the map. But it's still an awesome resource and one that I look at every day.

We will add the Snow Depth map and lots of other maps to the OpenSnow website and mobile apps in time for this winter. The maps are currently available on OpenSummit to All-Access subscribers ($19/year) and myself and our team have been thrilled to see a lot of people signing up this summer to get access to all of our maps (including real-time radar, forecast radar, and wildfire smoke forecasts).

Back to the weather…

The storm responsible for Tuesday's snow has stalled over western Colorado and will influence our weather on Wednesday and Thursday with continued showers.

The forecast radar below shows the showers starting on Wednesday midday and ending on Friday morning or midday.

After the showers, and for the upcoming weekend and next week, expect warmer and dry weather – a return to classic autumn conditions in Colorado.

Our next chance for rain showers (too warm for snow) might come at the end of next week, around September 17th-ish.
