Wet tonight (snow higher elevations); big wet storm at end of the week

12:15 PM, Tuesday, March 28, 2017

The storm currently moving through will continue to produce periods of mainly rain below 6000 feet, mainly snow above 7000 feet, and some slushy snow between 6000 and 7000 feet.

Denver-Boulder-Fort Collins-Colorado Springs: intermittent rain into tonight. The rain may mix or change to snow toward morning, but little or no accumulation is expected (0-2 inches). If there is accumulation the chances are a little better toward the south side of Denver and the north side of Colorado Springs.

Foothills and mountains: Rain should change to snow in the lower foothills tonight, with mainly snow continuing above 7000 feet. Accumulations are likely to range from a few inches in the lower foothills to between 6 and 12 inches higher up. There may be some localized areas greater than 12 inches, especially southwest of Denver and in the Pikes Peak region. Watch for accumulating snow in the Palmer Divide region as well.

 

Next storm Friday and Saturday

Another storm late Friday and Saturday is looking like it could be a slow moving 4-corners  type system that has the potential to be quite wet along the Front Range. Early indications are that is may also be a few degrees cooler which could bring significant wet snow into the lower elevations.
