The good news is that the continuation of cold weather for another two days won’t be record cold like what we experienced over the last week. Daytime temperatures are likely to be near freezing, and nighttime lows mainly in the teens through Friday morning. Both Denver and Boulder were above freezing on Tuesday, so our stretch of days below 32 ended.
Snow is likely in most parts of the Front Range region later today and tonight. Accumulation, where it occurs, is most likely between mid afternoon today and the predawn hours on Thursday. Amounts should range from a dusting on the eastern plains to 2-4 inches in and near the foothills. There will probably be some 6 inch reports in the foothills.
Temperatures are expected to return to more average levels Friday and Saturday. Then it looks like another cold front Sunday, followed by a warm up on Monday and Tuesday.
