DENVER — January was an active month for snowfall in the high country, and an average one for the city. Denver had just more than 6 inches for the month, which is average.

The totals in the high country were well above average in most cases.

For the season through January, Denver is nearing a foot of snowfall behind average.

Yet, the mountains tell a different story. Statewide snowpack is far ahead of average and much higher than any recent year.

Looking at the incoming warmer and relatively drier weather pattern — still some storms but not with the same amount of heavy snowfall as in December and January — Denver will continue to run short of average.

The mountains are holding a lot of snowfall but that line showing current snowpack won’t be climbing much in the week to two weeks ahead.
