Areas of light and moderate snow are affecting the mountains this morning. As a weak storm pulls east we should see some areas of snow across the Front Range and plains today. The snow is not likely to be continuous and accumulations along the Front Range will probably be variable ranging from little or nothing in some spots to a couple inches where it comes down moderately heavy for a short period. Some of our mesoscale models suggest that Denver has a better chance for accumulation than Boulder or Fort Collins.
A cold wind may follow the clouds and snow tonight. But it looks like a multi-day period of mild weather will kick in late Thursday or Friday. The price to pay for the milder weather may be occasional Chinook winds.
