Light snow tonight and Friday morning

2:40 PM, Thursday, January 7, 2016

There has been spotty (mainly minor) snowfall through the Front Range region today and that will continue into the evening. More widespread snow (mainly light) is likely later tonight and early Friday. The best chance for some heavier amounts is in the Palmer Divide region south of Denver.


The storm in question should result in mainly north winds (rather than east or northeast) which reduces the chance for heavier snow in most areas except the south suburbs of Denver and the Palmer Divide. Temperatures should remain below freezing Friday, and probably Saturday and Sunday too, but with drier weather over the weekend.


Most likely accumulations:

Palmer Divide, Castle Rock, south suburbs of Denver: 3-7 inches.

Coloroado Springs, Denver, Broomfield, Boulder, Nederland: 2-4 inches

Longmont, Fort Collins, Cheyenne: less than 3 inches


Mountains areas:

Mainly light snow there too, but heavier amounts (~12″) down south in parts of the Sangre De Cristos and San Juans.
