Too true. I checked the models at work and it looks like it will start snowing about sunrise, crank up to heavy snow by 10:00 a.m. and continue with varying intensities for about 24 hours.

Sensibly, I'm staying home. ;)

My wife has to work, Colo Blvd/I-25 area and we live in Parker. She is spending the night in a motel since she has a meeting at 0800 in Westminster. Me - :D retired and damn glad I don't have to go anywhere.

I feel for her and she's smart. That drive is miserable when the weather is bad. I...2...3... on the pointless milk and toilet paper runs.

We're in a whiteout. Schools are closed and most businesses are going home early. Earlier the skiing was great but now the conditions suck. Needless to say - I'm not going anywhere. Even shoveling is pointless.

Damn, I miss skiing! We are going to get it, with the possibility of 20 foot drifts. :eek:

"Large snowflakes" constitute an alert for you people?

I don't believe I've even seen a watch or warning that actually specified snowflake size before. :eek:

Dependant on the type of system, most forecasters will know the type of snow that will be falling. I can honestly say that i've never advertised that to the general public though. *shrugs*

It's not supposed to dip lower than the 40s here. We are supposed to get rain every day starting on the first though . . . . April showers and all. :)

... WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 4 AM CDT SUNDAY...
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 4 AM CDT SUNDAY.

RAIN IS EXPECTED TO CHANGE TO SNOW THIS EVENING AND CONTINUE OVERNIGHT. A TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATION OF 2 TO 5 INCHES IS EXPECTED TO OCCUR... WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE. THE COMBINATION OF A STRONG AND GUSTY NORTH WIND AND LARGE WET SNOWFLAKES WILL REDUCE THE VISIBILITY BELOW ONE MILE AT TIMES TONIGHT.

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY MEANS THAT UP TO 5 INCHES OF SNOW IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE ADVISORY AREA. ROADS MAY RAPIDLY BECOME SLIPPERY ONCE THE SNOW BEGINS... SO MOTORISTS SHOULD PLAN FOR A SLOWER THAN NORMAL TRIP. BE ESPECIALLY ALERT WHEN APPROACHING BRIDGES... OVERPASSES... AND CURVES.
