DENVER — Stock Show Weather is legendary in the Denver area. Cold conditions cover the Front Range with periods of snow. It does not happen every winter, but over the decades, there has been enough chilly weather during the National Western Stock Show to make it something folks remember.

The cold weather this year has been accompanied by a consistent snow cover that has held since just after Christmas. The low angle of the sun in mid-January makes it difficult for the snow to melt away, especially on north facing areas.

The persistent snow cover has helped keep the cold temperatures around and it looks as though the current cold will hold through much of the week. Some light snow or flurries will also be possible Tuesday night into early Wednesday. Highs will stay in the low 30s in Denver.

Temperatures should moderate a little Thursday and Friday, but will still be several degrees colder than the average highs in the middle 40s.

By Saturday, a fresh blast of cold air will arrive with the passage of a cold front. Snow will be likely on Saturday with a few more inches of snow accumulation and bitter cold temperatures late Saturday into Sunday and Monday.
