The Spring equinox is next Saturday evening (March 19th) in the mountain time zone, although it has been quite springlike already. We are in for a colder and more unsettled week beginning Monday in the mountains, and Monday night on the eastern plains.
Accumulating snow will probably be limited to the mountains (mainly west of Peak-to-Peak highway). There may be a brief shower (rain or snow) in the lower elevations of the Front range late Monday or Monday night, but little or no accumulation is expected. Although temperatures will be colder, it should still be close to average Tuesday-Wednesday (daytime mostly in the 40s in the lower elevations).
On Thursday another cold front and storm may bring snow late Thursday and/or early Friday. It’s too early for details, but the Thursday night storm looks like the next real chance for some accumulating snow in the Front Range urban corridor.
