For Sunday, a trough begins to dig in a bit and while it will bring snow, it will remain too far south to have a large effect on northern Colorado. Temperatures today will reach highs in the mid to upper 30’s.
In terms of snow, the daytime hours won’t see much. After 11:00am the chances increase and it could initially be a bit of a rain / snow mix. Little accumulation is expected during the day – less than 1/2 inch. Overnight, the chances increase as does the accumulation. Most places along the Front Range are looking at 1 to 3 inches total accumulation between today and through tonight. The southern foothills and some spots along the Palmer Divide may see a bit more.
- The earthquake that struck Chile yesterday tied for the fifth most powerful quake since 1900. Get all the details from the Natural Disasters Examiner.
Monday morning we will see lingering snow showers early on but they will be scattered with little additional accumulation. A stray flurry may appear during the day but without any impact. Temperatures on Monday remain cold with highs in the upper 30’s.
Tuesday and Wednesday, we should remind very nicely and see above normal temperatures with plenty of sun. Highs on Tuesday will be around 52 degrees followed on an even warmer day Wednesday with highs near 56 degrees.
Come Thursday and Friday, the pattern changes yet again. Another trough will move across the western United States and give us a chance to return to cold and wet conditions. This far out the track is far from certain. Some models put it passing north of us which would have little impact while others have it dip further south which would mean a better chance for snow. We will know more as the week progresses.
