The next period of snow for the Front Range is likely to arrive Wednesday afternoon. It does not look as big as the last storm, but roughly 3-6 inches appears likely for the Front Range corridor from Colorado Springs to Cheyenne, maybe a little less east and northeast of Longmont, and a little more in the higher elevations south and west of Denver.
The snow is likely to start by afternoon Wednesday in the northern Front Range and the Cheyenne area, and spread into the Denver-Boulder area by the evening commute. Most of the accumulation with this round is likely in the late afternoon and evening, so be prepared for a wintry commute Wednesday in Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins. On Thursday only areas of light snow are expected with minor additional accumulations.
The very mild weather we enjoyed much of this winter is gone for at least the next week. Continued cold and unsettled weather will continue into early next week. The next chance for significant snow is late Saturday, especially for western Colorado.
