With Mom being in the hospital could I just get a cut and dry version of how much now for Bailey, Conifer and Evergreen this weekend?

The news keeps talking rain but then they show snow so are we to get 3 inches or 12 inches?

Sorry I am so brain dead right now I need the simple version.

Thanks

Chief Meteorologist replied the topic: Winter Storm Watch Friday Afternoon through Saturday Night 13 Apr 2016 19:27 #3

Hi there. I'm very sorry to hear about your Mom being hospitalized. To put it simply, travel is not advised in the foothills (Bailey, Conifer, Evergreen) at all from late Friday night through Sunday. The current model predictions are for 24-36 inches of snow over the course of the weekend.

Roads will be snowpacked or impassable. Visibility will be poor and driving conditions extremely hazardous. If you are planning to go back and forth from Littleton to the foothills, it is not going to be an easy trip unless you have a very well-equipped four-wheel-drive with excellent snow tires and/or chains. The snow is expected to be slushy, wet and heavy, so we'll likely have power outages as well.

My honest recommendation is to get where you need to be by Friday evening, and plan on staying there until Sunday night or Monday morning. I hope this is helpful to you. If you need further info, please post here and I'll do my best. Cheers, Steve.

Wow, this looks epic. :applaud: Hopefully it holds off fire season a bit. This time last year we had a fire in South Park only a couple miles from our home.

Hey Steve,

I am headed back up the mountain around 3:00 today after getting Mom settled again at the rehab. Hubby says it is not snowing and I caught a little of the afternoon news while I was visiting with her.

Sounds like they are backing down on the snow amounts is that what you are seeing?

Thanks
