After frosty days, the lower elevations of Delta County are experiencing a mixture of sunshine and light snow along with warming temperatures. Meanwhile winter-like weather has taken hold on portions of Grand Mesa.
As of Nov. 3, Mike and Rose Wenner, owners of Grand Mesa Lodge, recorded between 6-12 inches of new snow although much of that modest amount had melted by press time. Grand Mesa Lodge is situated at 10,500 feet in a rustic area just off Highway 65 and adjacent to Island Lake so the weather there is a good reflection of what’s happening on the Delta County side of Grand Mesa.
According to Mike’s recent email: “This year we had 18 inches of snowfall in October compared to last year’s 35 inches in October. We are currently at 109% of average for this time of year. So nothing to worry about yet. Although early November looks dry and warm.”
