DENVER (CBS4) – As promised, no snow at all in Denver, but as with last storm, snow did fall to the south and west of Denver: some amounts: 1.5″ at Monument, 4″ at Beulah, 5.3″ at Rye and right at a foot of snow near Spanish Peaks in Huerfano County. More than quarter to a half inch of rain in most neighborhoods along the Front Range by Wednesday morning, then drier weather settled back into Colorado. Our official high in Denver reached a seasonal high of 57 degrees…58 downtown with plenty of sunshine by afternoon.
Thursday will be a pleasant day – partly sunny with a high in the mid 60s – but it will also be known as the day between storms systems. Yet another winter-like storm is headed toward Colorado and this one will be colder and that may mean a better chance for snow in the greater metro Denver area. Increasing clouds with rain developing on Friday and a cooler high in the mid 40s. Rain changes to snow late Friday and then could continue into most of Saturday. We’re still a few days out, so this storm – it’s strength or it’s path – could certainly change, but early amounts pit about 3 to 6 inches around Denver. It’s gone by Sunday with skies clearing as we push back into the mid 50s. Then Monday will see increasing clouds with isolated showers developing as another storms system begins to push into the state for Tuesday and Wednesday.
