I was able to see lots of snow on Coal Mountain and some of the time on Mt Gunnison yesterday all day. By the afternoon the sky had cleared up and most of visible snow was melted. But there was a stiff wind blowing out of the north across Fruitland Mesa, where I was.

Yesterday afternoon, September 18, 2013, it was raining. I looked toward Mt Gunnison and saw it was white. The dark waves of rain kept obscuring its peaks. However there were times when I could see the covered white peaks. It couldn't be hail, there was just too much white. This morning, I photographed Mt Gunnison and Coal Mountain from my front step as the sun was rising, about 6:45-7:00 a.m. Sure enough, there is snow on the peaks.
