What is the real story behind the snowiest February ever?

thedenverchannel.com — DENVER - What does the headline about record snowfall really mean? Well, until Friday it involved a lot of gray area. Gray area because Denver has had four different snowfall measuring sites in its history. The former record of 22.1 inches in 1912 was measured downtown, where measurements are no longer taken officially.

Snowpack Is Up But So Too is The Avalanche Danger

weather5280.com — Colorado's snowpack seeing much needed boost Colorado's weather pattern has shifted to a much snowier and colder one than we had previously been experiencing.

Wednesday Update: Tracking Our Weekend Storm

weather5280.com — Model play continues on weekend system The weekend system remains intriguing to say the least. Intriguing because of its potential for significant snowfall, and the dramatic swings in the modeling from run-to-run and from model-to-model. Brian's comments in his post yesterday are absolutely spot on with the variability in the modeling.

Front Range has had a wet winter

thedenverchannel.com — DENVER - Fall was particularly dry for most of the state. This included September, October, and November.
