Happy Equinox: Spring today, but not tomorrow

6 AM MDT, Saturday, March 20, 2021

The equinox was at 3:37 AM, and it will feel like spring today, but winter weather will stage a comeback on Sunday. Snow is likely to begin across the Front Range region Sunday afternoon (possible some rain at first below 6000 feet). Although this storm is not as large as last weekend’s, some areas of significant snowfall are likely through Monday morning, mainly south of Fort Collins.

Most likely accumulation:

6-12 inches: above 6500 feet in Boulder, Jefferson, Gilpin, Clear Creek, and Douglas counties.

3-7 inches: west and south sides of Denver metro, Castle Rock, Broomfield, Boulder

1-3 inches: northeast side of Denver, Longmont, Fort Collins

less than 1 inch: north of Fort Collins

Cold week

The week is likely to be generally colder than average with a couple more chances of at least some light snow midweek and toward the weekend.
