Clear Here But Snow Along Front Range

Continues mild and dry here - PW this morning less than a cm - but an October storm to our north has brought snow and cold to a larger part of the West. View above of Boulder Creek earlier this morning. Down at bottom is ghostly line of poles near Alpine, Wyoming, yesterday morning.

A large, cold trough at 500 mb (above) covers the West at 12 UTC this morning. Concurrent satellite image (below) shows cloud cover over most of U.S. west of the Mississippi, except for our part of the Southwest. Surface plot for about 10:00 am MST (second below) shows that the cold front has pushed into northeastern New Mexico. This front will back-door into southeastern Arizona tomorrow, bringing easterly winds, but not much change in our mild temperatures.
