Colorado has been experiencing a bit of dry spell in February, on the heels of a very snowy December and January that put the state’s snowpack at above-normal levels. However, the two- to three-week snowstorm drought ended today, as it’s a powder day!
Crested Butte is well on its way to surpassing record snowfall with 23 feet this season. Monday evening was the height of the storm. The snow totals seemed to be most significant in the southern and south-central ranges. Tonight, we should see more snow showers in central and northern parts of the state. That should be the conclusion of new snow for this week. On Sunday and Monday of next week, we will see a few more inches pile up in the southern mountains. This storm should keep Coloradans occupied until the next storm is predicted to hit around the 2nd week of March.
