Mild Christmas Day for metro Denver; snow expected in mountains

Data pix.

DENVER -- Snow will arrive in the Colorado mountains Tuesday night. Snow showers will still be possible in the mountains on Christmas Day.

The best snow will fall in the San Juan Mountains in southwest Colorado with as much as 5-10 inches possible by Christmas night. The central and northern mountains will see as much as 4-5 inches.

Merry Christmas! It'll be a mild holiday across metro Denver and the Front Range with morning sunshine and highs reaching the upper 40s to low 50s. There is still a small chance that we could see a snow shower or flurry in spots during the evening. It doesn't look like much, but I can't rule out a dusting.

We will have additional light snow showers late on Friday with more light snow possible in Denver on Saturday. That chance could give us an inch or two of accumulation.

Sunday will be dry and seasonal with highs in the low 40s.

Next week looks to stay dry and mild too.
