DENVER — In many respects, the past few weeks have been epic for snowfall on some of the state’s mountain ranges. Totals have climbed above 200 inches near Crested Butte.
These totals are mostly because of to a weather pattern change that triggered in late November and early December that is going to take a break for a little while.
Denver is running about a half-foot below average. Eighteen inches have fallen at Denver International Airport, Yet, the total precipitation from that snow and a few rains are keeping things about average on total moisture since Oct. 1.
That meager Denver snowfall total is blown away by some of the snow measurements coming out of the mountains.
The impressive and above average snowfall totals are in the mountains and west of the Continental Divide.
The outlook doesn’t change much through the rest of this month.AlertMe
