DISCUSSION: Ever wonder it is like to visualize an entire state covered in snowfall from north to south and from west to east? Then wonder no longer because Colorado is one of the few states from across the lower 48 contiguous United States of America which currently has nearly the entire state covered in snowfall as depicted in the visible satellite image captured much earlier this morning (6 January 2017). It is worth noting that this is not climatologically uncommon for this part of the country due to the higher prevalence of large amounts of snowfall during the period from late October/early November through early April across the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, throughout Rocky Mountain National State, and beyond. Having said that, in the wake of several strengthening low pressure systems which have moved through the state of Colorado in recewnt days and weeks, it is still impressive nonetheless to see this tremendous extent of overall state-wide snowfall cover.
