Cold, snowy weather returns Wednesday

5:30 AM MST, Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Colder weather with snow, mainly from metro Denver northward, will move into the area on Wednesday. Unlike the last two storms that impacted the morning commute, this one appears timed to impact the afternoon/evening commute.

For mountain areas near and west of the continental divide, the snow is likely to begin later today as the storm approaches with totals by Thursday morning of 6-12″.

For the eastern foothills and plains the accumulating snow should hold off until Wednesday, and especially Wednesday afternoon and evening. Widespread accumulations of 2-5 inches are likely from metro Denver to Cheyenne with the heaviest a little more likely in the west suburbs of Denver. Colorado Springs will probably receive less than an inch.

 

The snow will be accompanied by temperatures falling through the 20s and into the teens.  The snow should be over by Thursday morning with temperatures in the 0 to 10 range.
