Well, since the latest GFS and NAM continue to show a major plains snowstorm from the high plains of Colorado into Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Minnesota for this weekend, I'll start a thread.

If the latest NAM validates it will be an historic snow storm for parts of the high plains - not just for the month of April but for perhaps any month for certain areas, with broads areas of 10-20 inches of wind driven snow on the plains of Colorado and Kansas (and as much as 30+ inches in select locations). Even Nebraska and parts of Minnesota are looking at 6-10 inches if 12Z Nam Validates.

The remarkably warm spring has most of Colorado in full mid-spring bloom, so for areas getting the heavier amounts there will be severe tree damage and probably downed power lines.

Last couple GFS and Canadian runs have been showing quite the mega storm for parts of Colorado front range and plains into Nebraska for these dates.

Too far out to do much more than dream, but does seem like an active pattern for much of the country east of the Rockies.

For some runs now many of the models have being showing possibility of heavy snows for the mountains of Colorado and Wyoming and snow down into the Front Range cities of Colorado on Friday and Saturday.

Both 12 Z NAM and GFS showing 2-10 inches in the Denver and the Boulder area, with a sharp gradient from East to West. Here's 12 z NAM

The third snowstorm in little over the week is forecast for much of the Colorado mountains and mountain towns Monday night into Tuesday with a possible fourth snowstorm for the Memorial Day weekend.

After record warmth with an an early melt off in much of March and into April, winter returned to the mountains in May for a May to remember.

This storm will be biggest of bunch so far with up to 20 inches. Many years Memorial Day weekend can be summery even in the mountains with out door camping. This year it may feel like January.

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.
