Cold and snowy Saturday

5:00 PM, Friday, February 9, 2018

Even colder air will push south through eastern Colorado by Saturday keeping temperatures far below freezing (maybe no better than low 20s). Accumulating snow is likely Saturday throughout the Front Range region. It should be mainly light intensity, but some local bands of higher intensity could occur too. Most parts of the foothills and plains will likely see 1-3 inches. There could be a few local spots with a little more than 3. Near the continental divide up to 6 inches can be expected.


Although these aren’t very big amounts, given the cold, icy roads are likely. It appears late morning through evening might be the most likely time for accumulations.


Heads up: right now (5 PM Friday) there are some narrow east-west bands of snow developing in northern Colorado. I don’t expect much tonight, but be prepared for some localized areas of light accumulation.
