Weather update: 11/1/11

Currently we are planning to hold classes this evening, although as always everyone is urged to think of their own safety in deciding whether to come. Current weather forecast:

"... Winter Storm Warning in effect from 9 PM this evening to noon
MDT Wednesday...

The National Weather Service in Denver has issued a Winter Storm
Warning for snow and blowing snow... which is in effect from 9 PM
this evening to noon MDT Wednesday. The Winter Weather Advisory is
no longer in effect.

* Timing... a mix of rain and snow is expected to develop early
this evening... quickly changing over to snow by mid evening. The
snow will be heavy at times overnight with snowfall rates around 1
inch per hour.

* Accumulation/wind... total accumulations 5 to 10 inches can be
expected... with the highest amounts near the foothills and along
the southern suburbs of Denver. North winds of 15 to 25 mph will
occur... with stronger gusts east of Interstate 25 mph.

* Main impact... roads will become icy and snowpacked tonight with
hazardous travel conditions. Visibilities may also be reduced to
less than one quarter mile in areas of heavier snowfall and
blowing snow. Heavy snow may accumulate on trees resulting in
additional tree damage and scattered power outages."
