Denver’s snow chance continues for later in the week

DENVER -- Two systems will impact weather for the workweek in the Denver metro area, the second of which might be cold enough for snow.

No, it isn't too late to see snow. The latest date of snow falling in Denver is June 12, in 1947.

The first disturbance is impacting the state's weather for the first half of the week.

The threat of the first system will be strong and severe thunderstorms. Hail could be severe for the Plains and lightning will be a threat for all of the state.

For Denver, scattered rain and thunderstorms will be possible through late Wednesday. There's a 30 percent chance of rain.

Meanwhile, the mountains will have rain and some snow. Better chances of both will come after Tuesday.

The second disturbance will impact the state's weather for the second half of the week, and will likely be colder and wetter for all areas.

This second system is spinning over the Pacific Northwest. The storm's path will ultimately dictate if Denver sees snow falling and how much. It should determine its path by Thursday morning.

Wednesday night, Thursday and Friday look wet. As colder air filters in Thursday, the rain mixes with snow across the Front Range, including Denver and the Interstate 25 corridor.

Heavy snow is likely in the foothills, and the rain/snow mix in Denver could be heavy.

Temperatures likely will be trapped in the 40s for highs and near freezing for lows.

This might mean commuting will be impacted with wet and snowy roads, and after-school sports could be postponed. Graduations planned for Thursday and Friday could be moved indoors.

Friday looks even cooler, starting at 32 degrees with all snow changing back to a rain/snow mix across the I-25 corridor.

The most tree/plant damage, power outages and travel issues will be west of I-25, and might also be on the Cheyenne and Palmer ridges.

The storm finally clears and Saturday morning starts in the upper 20s. There will be a lingering chance of a rain shower on Saturday before sunshine returns on Sunday.
