Snow season might not be over yet

12:30 PM, Tuesday, April 25, 2017

The snow season of 2016-2017 has not measured up along the Front Range, with both Denver and Boulder running more than 35 inches below average (average is 57 inches in Denver and 93 inches in Boulder). Although we are not going to make up the difference this week, we may add a bit to the seasonal total by Saturday morning.

Tuesday night- Thursday

A  minor storm system tonight may bring some snow (or rain changing to snow) by Wednesday morning. There could even be a brief thundershower Tuesday evening. Some light accumulation should be expected in the mountains and Palmer Divide area, but little or nothing is expected in Colorado Springs-Denver-Boulder-Fort Collins-Cheyenne.


Wednesday and Thursday should be cool, but not cold, and mostly dry. Some intervals of clouds and precipitation should bring some more light amounts of snow to the mountains and maybe some rain showers to the lower elevations.



Early indications are for a more organized storm system going into the weekend. I will update later this week, but at this point it does look like it should be cold enough for some snow in the lower elevations.
