The trend has been in the direction of a widespread snowfall across the Front Range region and adjacent plains tonight. Although a major storm isn’t expected, winter travel condition are likely in some areas after dark and into the late night.
There will probably be some rain around into the late afternoon, mixing or changing to snow in some of the heavier showers. The best chance for steady snow will probably develop between 7-10 pm this evening and then taper off from north to south before sunrise. The snow may come down hard for a brief period after dark, especially in and near the foothills. Some light snow may linger into early Saturday, especially for the south and east sides of metro Denver.
Most likely accumulations through early Saturday:
Above 7000 feet: 3-8 inches
Cheyenne, Boulder, Broomfield, west side of Denver, Castle Rock: 2-4 inches
Fort Collins, Longmont, DIA, east side of Denver, Colorado Springs, 0.5-2 inches
Saturday afternoon and Sunday
Mainly dry, but cool. Cold air aloft on Sunday will probably cause a few showers (rain or snow) to develop in the late afternoon and evening. These will probably be most numerous in the central and southern mountains of Colorado. Milder weather sets in on Monday.
