Now, I know a lot of you in the northeast probably could care less about
what happens in Colorado, but the storm that looks like it will form out in
the plains is looking almost scary for those people who live on and in the
Front Range of Colorado.  Anywhere from Denver to southeastern Montana is
going to get absolutely crushed.  Matt, keep us informed on what type of
powder antics go down at Loveland.

Here is an cut out of today's Denver NWS discussion on snowfall potential:
"THE AVN GIVES STORM TOTALS OF 15 TO 20 INCHES FROM CHEYENNE TO DENVER AND
OUT TO LIMON.
THE ETA HAS STRONGER DYNAMICS FOR LONGER AND HAS NOT YET MOVED THE
SYSTEM OUT WHEN IT ENDS WED AFTERNOON.  IT SHOWS 35 TO 45 INCHES IN
DENVER WITH 8 TO 20 INCHES ON THE MIDDLE PLAINS AND JUST AN INCH IN
THE NE CORNER.  THERE ARE GOOD REASONS THE ETA CRANKS OUT THIS
MUCH...BUT IT SEEMS PRUDENT TO MENTION THAT KIND OF A STORM AS A
POSSIBILITY RATHER THAN A LIKELIHOOD AT THIS TIME.  SOMETHING LIKE
THE OCTOBER 1997 STORM SEEMS TO BE A FAIRLY GOOD PROBABILITY.
FOOTHILLS WILL GO NUTS ON WED IF THE ETA IS RIGHT.  SNOW MODEL RUN
BASED ON THE ETA SUGGEST STORM TOTALS OF 3 TO 6 FEET FROM OROGRAPHIC
COMPONENT...THEN YOU HAVE TO ADD THE SYNOPTIC SCALE STUFF.  ENOUGH
SAID."

3-6 feet!?! That's sick stuff.
