DENVER —Most of the snow has finally melted away to just lingering piles in shady areas around Denver. However, a new storm system will replenish those piles starting Tuesday evening and continuing through Wednesday!
Tonight will be partly cloudy in the Denver area, while some rain and snow showers move over the southeast plains and the mountains. Lows will be in the upper 20s to low 30s for Denver and the plains, with teens and lower 20s in the mountains.
The storm will move into Colorado on Tuesday, with snow increasing in the mountains and developing in the evening for the Denver area. Highs will be in the 40s on Tuesday, but temperatures will begin to fall in the afternoon with a stiff northeast wind.
This storm has the potential for 3 to 6 inches of snow for Denver with a foot or more in the mountains, especially the San Juan and La Garita Mountains. The weather will turn much colder with readings in the upper 20s on Wednesday and single digit lows by Thursday morning.
A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for the southern half of Colorado from Tuesday afternoon all the way until midnight Wednesday in many cities. The southern part of the Denver Metro area is included in that watch.
Potential snow totals:
- Palmer Divide: 6”-10”
- Southern Denver metro: 4”-8”
- Northern metro up to Boulder: 2”-4”
- Northern I-25 to Fort Collins and plains: Trace to 3”
- Telluride: 1 to 2 feet
