Heavy mountain snow moves in tonight bringing travel impacts and fresh powder


What could be a longer lasting surge of spring-like temperatures may arrive late next week into next weekend, with perhaps our first string of 60-something degree days since February.

Sunday is supposed to have a high temperature of 30 and a low of 16, Whitmyer said. Denver has a chance to see scattered light rain showers this evening through mid morning on Sunday before clearing out.

Little to no snow accumulation is expected from this system. Yesterday, temperatures climbed into the low to mid 60s for most of the region as a warm front passed through in the morning. Tonight a weak system will bring in snow showers to the area. Average temperatures return on Thursday with partly sunny skies and highs in the lower to mid 60s. Now there can be a slushy coating in most spots and up to an inch in the higher elevations.

Tuesday: A chance of rain and snow before 9am, then a chance of rain between 9am and 4pm.

Tuesday: Becoming mostly cloudy, isolated valley shower/mountain flurry. Light and variable wind. Chance of precipitation is 20 percent.

Wednesday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 37.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 73. There may only be a shower near the coast, but otherwise will remain dry.

Friday night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 42. Temperatures will moderate closer to near seasonable temperatures in the low 50s.
