Along with a blast of wet snow, the bluebirds have arrived. Today is most likely our last day #behindtheplow for this season.

MID-SEASON SNOW PLOWING UPDATE
January 31 marked the halfway point of our snow plowing season. While winter got off to a slow start this year, regular storms during January brought our snow precipitation in Silverthorne up to about 90% of average. While big storms get everyone’s attention, a series of regular, smaller storms can also be great for the snow pack.

It was a beautiful morning to be behind the plow in Silverthorne. We're expecting clear weather for the next week, and are hopeful that the stormy pattern lurking on the horizon will kick in and give us good snow for the second half of December.

I-70 Corridor Blizzard for Friday Evening Travel

We’re happy to be getting some snow, but the timing is the worst for those travelling to the mountains Friday evening. Blizzard conditions expected from about 3 PM – 9 PM, with heavy snow, wind, poor visibility, and likely road closures. This will be a fast-moving storm, so if you can, adjust your travel time to earlier Friday, or wait until Saturday morning, to miss the worst driving conditions. CDOT will likely implement the Passenger Traction Law, so please make sure your vehicle is prepared with snow tires, AWD/4WD, and/or chains.

For Silverthorne, we’re expecting between 3″ and 6″ of snow by Saturday morning, and we anticipate that this will trigger our snow plowing crew to be out on Saturday. Please move your cars to allow for plowing. The ski slopes are forecasted to get up to a foot of fresh snow by Saturday morning – yay!

DON'T LET THIS BE YOU - TRAVEL SMART!

We expect to see snow on the I-70 corridor from mid-day Friday through Saturday morning with 4"-8" of accumulation. Clearing but cold Saturday.

Icy and snow-packed road surfaces with reduced visibility anticipated through Friday night. CDOT will likely implement the Passenger Traction Law, so please make sure your vehicle is prepared with snow tires, mud/snow tires, and/or chains from Thursday night through Saturday morning.

A TOUCH OF SNOW FRIDAY NIGHT - about 2-4" of snow over the higher elevations is expected between sunset Friday and sunrise Saturday. This will effect driving on the I-70 corridor over the passes. Be prepared for icy conditions. Things will then return to sunny fall weather through the middle of next week.

The race for first opening is on. Silverthorne had snow flakes falling last weekend, although not accumulating yet.

BEST WEEKEND TO SEE FALL COLOR?

The Aspen leaves have by no means peaked yet, but this weekend may be the best time to see what fall color we have. The weather forecast towards the end of next week is for some strong gusty winds that could end up stripping off many of the leaves.

The hummingbirds and red-winged blackbirds have left already, at least two weeks early. Did they sense an early winter approaching? We will have to wait and see .....
