Another spring snowstorm headed for Denver
DENVER — After a mild Saturday, another spring storm system could bring snow to the metro area by Sunday.
Temperatures reached the mid 60s on Saturday with a mixture of clouds, sun and wind throughout the day. Rain and cooler conditions were expected to move in around 10:30 p.m.
Meteorologist Shanna Mendiola says we can expect temperatures in the 50s with rain and snow showers possible Sunday morning. Winds will also increase throughout the day.
A winter weather advisory was issued Saturday for Boulder, Clear Creek, Jefferson and Larimer Counties until Sunday afternoon.
For the mountains, winter weather advisories will be in effect 9 p.m. Saturday night through noon on Sunday for the Elkhead and Park Mountains, Central Mountain Valleys, West Elk and the Sawatch mountains.
Overnight Sunday into Monday in the Front Range, rain and snow will move in around 12:30 a.m. from the south (Parker, Castle Rock), and is not expected to reach Denver until around 2 a.m. Monday morning.
Very little snow is expected from this first round, less than an inch. Colorado will go through several days of unsettled weather to start the week with a chance of snow everyday through Wednesday. Heavier snow expected Tuesday and Wednesday with the most accumulation Wednesday.
Temperatures are expected to plummet into the teens and 20s by Tuesday.
