In Colorado, the last three weeks have been one for the books. The proximity of the jet stream has followed La Nina architecture. The latest forecasts keep La Nina going strong through Spring into Summer.
Thanks Chris! Looks like we could have a few more snowy days up here!
You bet, Vickie! Chris

This was my first snow season following your blog. Very informative and I will continue to follow your weather blog.
Thanks, Trini! Chris
Hey Chris, thanks for the outlook and the ski area snowfall totals. I’m curious how they landed as compared to average. Is it possible to add that to the graph? Thanks for all you do!
Thanks, Dan! I found my Winter forecasts from August/September 2021. There were hits and misses as usual. You’re right, it will make for a good post. Chris
