A minor storm passing through the Front Range region today will keep it generally cloudy with intermittent precipitation. Precipitation is likely to be mainly snow above 6000 feet, with minor accumulations of 0.5-3 inches. Below 6000 feet we are likely to see rain or rain mixed with snow, changing to snow later in the day. Accumulations in the lower elevations should vary from nothing to about an inch.
Temperatures are likely to hover in the 30s most of the day. Therefore, the rain won’t do much to melt the existing snow and ice, but it may further saturate the snow on the ground which will freeze tonight. The good news is that daytime temperatures should climb well above freezing Friday and Saturday. The next cold front and chance for minor snowfall is late Sunday or Monday.
