I dunno. There were textures up there, and some blue later on. The ugly days, for me, are the uniformly gray but dry days where there's no mist, no undulation to the clouds.


It got better but early on it wasn't just grey it was a yellowish grey haze. Later it was more dark grey with texture as you said. Even got some very light sprinkles up in North Park this afternoon. Not enough to wet the asphalt but enough to use the wipers a few times.

I saw green on the radar to the south but figured it was all virga but maybe not.


Now you wanna debate gray vs grey, eh? Alright, let's do it.

It's balmy.
Got about 2/10 last night in steady drizzle. Hoping for another wave.
I used to be with it, then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with, isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to yoooouuu.

I havent been minutely scrutinizing this storm, but the trajectory on satellite makes me think its on the warmer side. High snow levels.

That sounds about right for mid-November.

3 days of rain didn't help anything, no snowmaking for at least a week either.

Looks like rain is on the way. 8K snow levels with subtrop tap -
LOX disc
Long term (wed-fri)...
all extend models agree that a broad SW flow pattern will set up during
the extend periods. ... The GFS has also been
advertising some decent rainfall amounts but its never a good idea
to take stock in rainfall forecasts this far out.

Last 3 runs, really last 4, of GFS have taken our share of the storm away. Will this be one of those where every run within 200 is completely dry? Stay tuned

Good, we don't need 3 days of rain, cold temps would be nice though.

Agreed, but it's counter intuitive for me to pray against rain. I love that stuff, man.
