Winter weather

Yes, snow is in the forecast already my friends, but most of you don't have to worry about it. The snow is happening where winter always comes early, in the high mountains of the West. The Colorado Rockies will get the brunt of this winterlike storm with 6-12 inches of snow expected above 6,500 feet. Even the foothills just west of Denver will pick up some snow late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. There will be a mix of rain and snow in Denver itself and nearby localities.
The early season snowfall is being caused by a cold core low pressure system centered over the western Plains. Because the coldest air is always aloft with these disturbances, higher elevations get the snow while lower elevations do not.

Soooo much for global warming !!!
