It's going to be that super-heavy, wet snow that downs power lines and then magically goes away in 12 hours to 80-degree temps. It's the same state where you'll use your car's heater and air conditioner on the same day.

Ah, well. Beats our neighboring states by several miles.

Late freeze = fewer insects this summer.   And fewer birds.

Who needs dirt skis when the snow never melts?

Well, that explains the stormy Saturday and cool Sunday/Monday in my forecast.

Ah yes, I remember my days living in Denver. Where I'd go to work in a polo shirt and wishing I could wear shorts because of the sweltering heat in the morning, and on my drive home get stuck in a blizzard.

I've not lost power once since I've been living in Colorado and that's been a few years now.  It wasn't uncommon back in Texas during thunderstorms though.  We got super-heavy, wet snow last year but I think it was late April. I don't remember for sure. I've been working on my garden a lot too just like last year.

I don't expect it to be that bad.  They've already revised the forecast low from 28 to 32 and it's supposed to be raining right now but it isn't - not at my house anyway. Snow is supposed to hit tomorrow evening.  It's 47.5 outdoors and 78.3 indoors. It reached 82.6 outdoors an 86.9 indoors yesterday according to my thermometers.  I thought about turning on the AC, but that's crazy when it's supposed to snow the next day.

That 86.9 was in the hottest room in the house. It was probably 10 degrees cooler downstairs.

Bees will be fine. They can basically switch their wings to neutral and rev the engine to keep warm

Denver's dumb cousin to the west (Salt Lake) is getting a bit of a cold front today and tomorrow also, but no snow thankfully. Perfect temps actually as Mrs. Pow and I are going out to the Salt Flats for a party Saturday evening ... and continued in Wendover through the night. I was worried it was going to be 110 degrees already. Forecasts in the 50-60 range.

We're supposed to get a foot. Good for the fire danger in the very short term, at least.

I'm hanging out in KC. Don't know which is worse.

Please do not taunt the Buffalo weather.
 
2022-05-20 5:43:06 AM  
Meanwhile, I'll be seeing temperatures in the mid to high 90's today and tomorrow. Days like this really make me miss standard Denver weather.

Today, I had to buy a new battery for the used electric lawnmower I bought off marketplace so I could mow my lawn for the first time this year before the forecasted 6-11 inches of snow we are supposed to get tomorrow.

It's a uniquely Colorado problem to have.

we're past the freeze zone i hope here in socal. last couple of years late freeze events froze all of our apple crop, this year all the trees set blooms, should be a bumper crop this year...
 
2022-05-20 6:43:24 AM  
We will be getting the remnants of that storm. Temps hitting freezing over night then we'll hit 80 in a week.

Good thing we haven't planted the garden yet

I'm looking forward to the 50-60s tomorrow in the KC area so my son and I can replace the deck.

I'll use this as an excuse to go beat up the groundhog.

Still dropping to the low 40s in Oregon, although we might break 70F today or tomorrow for the first time this year.  Longest Spring I've seen here in 20 years. Normally, it goes from cold and drizzly to hot and dry in a week.

After seeing this forecast yesterday (I live in upstate NY for ref) I was amused.  Then, looked at my phone this morning and read "heat advisory" as "frost advisory" and was like....WTF???  Thanks, brain.

It got down to 80° this morning, just 800 miles away, as the snow flies.

When I was stationed at Ft Carson we went out of a field exercise where it was a glorious 82 during the day we deployed. Got everything set up and established and went to bed. Woke up the next morning with the tents sagging. Thinking maybe some of the ropes let loose we went out to fix it only to find 2 feet of snow had fallen overnight.That day it went back up into the 80s and all that snow turned into mud. It took two weeks to clean everything.

Living in CO was some of the most confusing weather times.... until recently.

They're calling for a foot of snow here today into tomorrow.

Us in the COS area are wondering what precipitation is, it's been so long since we've had any.
