Icy evening in places, then dry weekend

3:00 PM MST, Friday, January 11, 2019

Intermittent snow is likely into the evening today, mainly along the west and south side of metro Denver and the Palmer Divide. Although additional accumulation won’t be very large, nightfall and temperatures dropping below freezing may cause some accumulation and black ice on roads this evening.


The weekend should be dry and seasonably cold, but perhaps with some air stagnation along the urban corridor.


At 3PM at my home in South Boulder there has been 1.2 inches of snow and 0.54 inches of liquid. That’s a remarkable snow-to-liquid ratio for a January storm. About 0.15 inches of liquid fell as rain early this morning. It’s more like an April storm!
