Colder, some snow Friday night and Saturday

12:15 PM, Thursday, December 10, 2015

Cooler air will start to move into the Front Range region on Friday, and then colder with clouds and some snow Friday night and Saturday.

 

Most probably accumulations:

3-6 inches lower foothills and plains (maybe a little less on the high plains east of Denver).

6-10 inches mountain areas, heaviest north I-70.

 

Timing:

Northern Colorado mountains and Cheyenne area may see the first accumulating snow late afternoon or early evening Friday.

Lower foothills and plains (Denver-Boulder) probably won’t see the first snow until after dark Friday evening.

 

Uncertainty about heavier snow:

The storm will become stronger as it moves east-southeast across Colorado and into Kansas/Oklahoma. If the intensification occurs a little sooner, the potential for somewhat heavier snow goes up. That appears to be an unlikely scenario at this time. I will update tomorrow.
