Colder; little snow for the Front Range

7 AM MST, Wednesday, December 26, 2018

Cold weather will be in place through Saturday, with temperatures even in the lower elevations likely to stay below freezing all day Thursday and Friday.


A storm system moving to the south of Colorado and then intensifying out on the Great Plains will mostly miss the Front Range and the urban corridor. The best chance for accumulating snow tonight and early Thursday will be in the south suburbs of Denver and the Palmer Divide region, but even here the amounts will likely be less than 2 inches where it does snow. From Denver northward, 0 to 1 inch will likely be the range, with 0 most likely in Longmont, Fort Collins, and Greeley.

Light snow amounts are likely today and tonight in the higher mountains.

The only area with significant winter weather is out on the high plains near the border with Kansas and Nebraska. Around 6-10 inches of snow and blowing snow may make travel difficult late tonight and early Thursday for people traveling west toward the Front Range on I-70, I-76, and I-80.

There is a small chance for flurries or areas of light snow Friday, but that is more likely along the southern Front Range (south of Pueblo).
