DENVER — Mild temperatures in the 50s brought a Spring-like feel on Tuesday, but a fast-moving storm will bring Winter right back.
Light rain showers in the metro area Tuesday night are expected to turn into heavy snow showers As the temps fall during the night.
The National Weather Service said they expect the rain to transition to snow by 10 p.m. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 3 a.m. Wednesday for the metro area.
The forecast models are calling for between 1 to 3 inches of snow by early Wednesday morning according to Chief Meteorologist Dave Fraser.
Snow will be heavier near the foothills and the Palmer Divide with 3-5″ possible.
“Snow accumulations may vary largely depending on exactly how fast the changeover from rain to snow occurs,” the NWS said.
The Wednesday morning commute is expected to be slushy, icy in spots and slow.
The storm should move out quickly and warm weather is expected to settle back in across the Front Range on Wednesday and Thursday.
