I started this topic just because I could. It's not every day you get a Blizzard Warning for Hawaii, and on Christmas Eve to boot! Salt in the wounds for those further north that were hoping for a white Christmas and were disappointed.

After an uneventful winter for the Colorado Front Range urban corridor with no storm more than 4 or 5 inches, the second week in May brings a potential major winter storm to the Front Range Cities with a possible 4-9 inches of snow in the core urban areas and up to 2 feet or more in the nearby mountains. Although this storm will produce tons of severe weather across the plains, it looks like the winter storm will be limited to the high plains of Colorado and the mountains.

The trees are mostly leaved now in the Denver area so this has the potential to cause significant damage and power outages from downed lines. It's already been a chilly snowing week in the mountains, and Lake Dillon in Summit County is only partially thawed. That area could see 2 feet of fresh snow by Monday. Below is a live shot looking down at Lake Dillon from the Keystone Ski resort.



Heavy snow in Denver and the Front Range cities could wreck havoc.
