Storm could produce wet, slushy commute for Wednesday morning

DENVER — Rain showers will continue to expand up and down the Front Range and through metro Denver on Tuesday evening.

At times, the rain could be moderate. And, there could also be a rumble of thunder.

It will be all rain north of the city overnight into Wednesday. In the city, it will change to a rain/snow mix with up to 1 inch of slushy accumulation mainly on grassy areas.

It will be all snow overnight south and west of Denver above 6,000 feet.

These areas will see the deepest snow totals ranging from 2-6 inches. The higher totals will be closer to Monument Hill.

There could be some isolated areas that get just a little more. Roads will be slick for the Wednesday morning drive so allow extra time.

The Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs announced a late start of 10:30 a.m. for “nonmission essential” personnel because of the winter storm warning for the area.

There will be 1-4 inches of new accumulation in the northern mountains, 3-6 inches in the central mountains and 4-8 inches in the southern mountains. The snow ends Wednesday morning.

There will be a rain/snow mix Wednesday morning then ending as rain showers around noon. It will turn drier in the afternoon with a brisk north wind.
