Denver could extend its record for the latest first snow by getting through the next 24 hours by missing out on this one too! There may be a few local areas of minor snow accumulation (and inch or less) for the lower foothills and plains of the Front Range, but many parts of this region appear likely to get by with little or nothing. It does still appear that heavy snow will fall in the higher mountains and along some west-facing slopes of Colorado and Wyoming. That’s it until the middle of next week, and at this point that one is not looking like much of a precipitation maker east of the continental divide.
