DENVER– Temperatures have fallen 30 degrees but it’s still too warm for all snow in Denver. It will change to snow between 9 a.m.-Noon. The prime time for snow is afternoon/evening, especially after the sun goes down.
Blizzard Warnings go into effect for the Palmer Divide and Eastern Plains at 9 a.m. Blowing and drifting is likely with 25-50 mph wind gusts.
Today is a Pinpoint Weather Alert Day for all these reasons.
The Mountains will be all snow. Heaviest snow is midday through evening. 4-12 inches of accumulation. Gusty wind 25-50 mph.
I’m forecasting 3-8 inches in Denver, Boulder, Loveland and Fort Collins. With a later changeover to snow in NOCO that will cut-down on total accumulations.
Foothills can expect mostly snow with 6-12 inch totals by late tonight / early Friday. Gusty wind.
The Palmer Divide (>6,000ft, Castle Rock, Monument) can expect rain to snow, 4-12 inch totals. Blizzard Warnings, blowing and drifting this afternoon/evening.
Snow tapers-off overnight with flurries on Friday morning. Then drier.
Dry Saturday-Sunday, 50.
