First snow of Winter 2012 in CO just reported the season’s first snowfall in the Rockies.

The eastern Sawatch Mountains and western Mosquito Range of Colorado will be whitened by snow above 11,000 feet with the heaviest snow expected above 12,000 feet.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service is watching for weak El Nino weather patterns to emerge in September, and continue throughout the season:

Most of the dynamical models, along with roughly one-half of the statistical models, now predict the onset of El Niño beginning in August-October 2012, persisting through the remainder of the year.

The next ENSO discussion will be released by the CPC on October 4, 2012. Look for an updated snowfall forecast then.
