Denver set for warm Sunday, but snow may fall Monday, Wednesday


There's a chance of rain showers transitioning into snow Monday night, dropping an inch or less in Denver.

TODAY: Starts off chilly with a wintry mix.

"There may be a few snow showers around in the week following Tuesday".

Low pressure developing over the central U.S. Friday will track toward the Carolinas Saturday.

The storm will bring heavy snow to the Dakotas on.

Snow accumulations of 4 to 6 inches are expected in parts of Montana, NWS said. These counties still have a Winter Storm Warning in place until 2 AM Sunday. Periods of wet snow over higher terrain overnight, possibly up to 10 millimetres. There may be a small chance of black ice Monday morning. This is a change in our forecast, as our next system looks delayed just a bit.

Saturday night: A chance of rain showers before midnight, then a chance of rain and snow showers. Winds west-northwesterly moderate, easing westerly light to moderate during the afternoon, then backing south-southwesterly and increasing strong overnight. Any shifts to the storm track will greatly affect the snowfall forecast. Coastal areas will see mostly (or all) rain.

Since the winds are from the southeast, Mack expects the east and northeast areas of the city will require extra attention. Snowfall rates may peak between 1-2 inches per hour leading to significant reductions in visibility and very hard travel conditions. Meanwhile, Uma will drop a thin stripe of heavy, wet snow from the Dakotas to the Smoky Mountains. "It hasn't been real warm, but it's been warm enough that the soil temperatures are above freezing, so some of it will melt when it hits the ground". Most of the rain, if any, will be in the morning.
