Two weekend's into February in southern Colorado, we've seen two winter storms.

Totals varied quite widely - with intense snow bands pouring snow onto some of us, while other areas only saw an inch or less!

Here are some of the totals region wide since Friday:

At the Colorado Springs airport, the official snow total was 3.6" - with 0.6" on Friday, and 3.0" on Saturday and a total equivalent liquid amount of 0.34". In Pueblo, we recorded 3.3" at the airport Saturday with only a trace on Friday, which if melted equaled 0.33" of liquid. Compared with last weekend's storm, this storm was colder which led to higher rain:snow ratios - a lighter and fluffier snow that was easier to shovel, although still not the classic dry winter snow we're used to here.

With this storm added in, we're well above average snowfall wise in the Springs, but slightly below in Pueblo

With this storm included, we're well above average for snowfall in the Springs, but below average in Pueblo for the year to date. Radar estimated totals across the region paint a fairly accurate picture but shows an underestimate over La Veta Pass where a widespread 8 inches were reported with cooperative observation sites.
