7:30 AM MST, March 2, 2019
For those who followed this blog the last two days, there are two adjustments to the forecast snow.
- The potential for some heavy snowfall rates has shifted south a little. This means the south part of Denver and Colorado Springs are a little more at risk, while Fort Collins and Cheyenne are a bit less at risk for the higher amounts. The risk for Boulder and the north part of metro Denver has not changed.
- It had looked like the storm would be over on Sunday morning, but now it appears that additional light accumulation may occur into Sunday night.
As of 7am, 2-5 inches has fallen in Fort Collins and Cheyenne, less to the south. An east was band of snow is current affecting the northern part of metro Denver.
There may be a lull during the late morning or midday hours, but we still expect the main snowfall this afternoon and overnight. After a possible lull in action Sunday, some more light snow and flurries are likely to develop (mainly from Boulder-Denver southward) late Sunday and Sunday night.
Additional Accumulations (7AM Saturday to 7AM Sunday)
5-9″- in and along the foothills from Boulder County southward (Denver west of I-25, Nederland, Boulder, Broomfield, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs)
3-6″- east side of Denver, Longmont, Fort Collins
2-4″- Cheyenne, Greeley
Additional accumulations late Sunday
dusting – 2″ mostly likely from Boulder-Denver southward
