DENVER — Weather will be cool and soggy for the rest of the week in the Denver metro area.
Scattered rain showers with some thunder will be around Tuesday evening across Denver and the Front Range. Some of that rain will change to snow overnight as temperatures head just below freezing.
A slushy light accumulation on the grass south of the city is not out of the question by Wednesday morning.
Rain and snow showers will continue in the mountains. The rain will fall during the day with the best chance for snow during the overnight hours.
Accumulation will generally be light with 1-2 inches. However, above 10,000 feet, accumulation by Thursday could reach 6 inches or more.
It’s possible there could be all snow across Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins and Castle Rock from Friday night into Saturday.
Accumulation looks possible with several inches in the city. There could be looking at higher totals on the south side of downtown.
Overnight lows will be below freezing so it’s time to start thinking about protecting plants and outside pipes.
