Cold air will push back into the Front Range region this afternoon and early evening sending temperatures in the urban corridor to the 0-10 range tonight. After a cold Thursday, milder and breezy conditions should return on Friday.
Later this afternoon and evening we should see a widespread snow with very variable accumulations. In general it will be a light snow, but there are likely to be long and narrow bands (100-200 miles long and 10-20 miles wide) of heavier snow that develop and dissipate. The bands will be oriented northwest to southeast. Therefore, snow accumulations are likely to range from 1-5 inches from metro Denver north, depending on if you get a period of heavier snow. As you go south from Denver, the heavier bands are less likely, and there could even be some areas with little or no accumulation.
