The Weather Alternative Forecast for Oct 25-27 posted at the end of September is certainly shaping up.

Oct 25-27:
A vigorous low pressure system will trek across the Rockies generating strong storms.

Here's what Accuweather has to say:

Snowstorm Impact
Updated: Wednesday, October 25, 2006 3:01 PM
This will be remembered as a big storm. The heaviest snow will fall in the Colorado Rockies and along the Front Range. Snowfall totals will exceed a foot in the south-central part of the state. In Denver, expects up to 8 inches. Storm development will be explosive later Wednesday night as air masses clash. The intensifying swirl of air will cause winds to reach 40 miles or more resulting in blowing snow and blizzard conditions. The only thing missing will be extremely low temperatures, which is a trait of a true blizzard. The storm will close roads, cause airport delays and bring down power lines. The snow from this storm will not expand across the Great Plains due to a lack of cold air. There it will just rain.
