Snowpack levels for the Upper Colorado River Basin are above normal for this time of year but other areas such as the mountains in the southwest are struggling. Grand Junction's National Weather Service reports our snow pack is up from last year and is at 125%.
But despite all the snow in the northcentral mountains,
the state's snow pack totals still lag behind last year due to below–average snow in the south. The national weather service has issued a winter storm advisory for the northern and central mountains from 6 p–m tonight until noon tomorrow. The weather service says 5 to 10 inches are expected. Grand Junction could also see more snow,
there's a 40 percent chance one inch or more could fall after midnight.
