New Year’s Weekend: cold, maybe some snow by early Monday

11:30 AM MST, Friday, December 28, 2018

The cold will let up a bit by Sunday ahead of another cold front Sunday night that should bring more cold weather New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. No major storms are expected to impact the Front Range Region during the weekend, but some light snow amounts may accompany the arrival of the next cold spell Sunday night or Monday.

Temperature

December did not bring any temperature extremes (either warm or cold). Although tonight will probably be the coldest of the season so far for the Front Range and eastern plains, it won’t be anything remarkable for this time of year.

By Sunday we should see temperatures near or even a little above average (40s for most of the Front Range urban corridor). The the next cold air mass Sunday night should keep daytime temperatures no warmer than the 20s for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, and New Year’s morning will probably see a range of 0-10 for most locations in the urban corridor.

 

Snow

A relatively weak storm system with the next cold front will probably bring some light snow amounts Sunday night or Monday for the mountains and the urban corridor. Right now it’s looking pretty minor. I will update on Sunday.

 

Warm spell ahead

Beginning on January 2nd it appears we may enter a multi-day stretch of dry and unseasonably mild weather. But as is often the case with warm weather in January, we will have to watch for the potential for some windy periods.
