Overview

A large, prolonged winter storm produced heavy snow across the higher terrain of western Colorado and eastern Utah from November 27-November 29 and led to many lower valley locations seeing their first measurable snowfall of the season! Portions of the northern, central, and southern Colorado mountains received anywhere from 10 to 20 inches with over 2 feet of snow measured in some areas. In addition to snow, an upper level jet measuring 150 kts resided over the area and generated gusty winds, generally for areas south of I-70. These winds created blizzard-like conditions for drivers in the San Juan Mountains early Sunday morning.
