DENVER (CBS4) – We made it to the last day of February and it looks like we will get a little more snow to add to that February record. February 2015 is the snowiest February ever for Denver. So far, Denver has had 22.2 inches for the month. The old record was 22.1 inches from 1912!
We still have cold air in place and now we are going to see a big push of moisture streaming in from the southwest. There is a big cut-off low over southern California that will be feeding this moisture right in and over the cold air already in place over the state. This will really energize the snow machine over southwest and western areas of the state. Along with bringing in a little more snow over the rest of the state.
In and around the Denver metro area we may see a few flurries Saturday night into Sunday morning with light accumulations. Snow will pick up late in the day on Sunday on into Monday morning with 1 to 3 inches in the metro area and 3 to 6 inches in the foothills for the Monday Morning commute.
There are a variety of Winter Storm Warnings and Advisories for western spots of Colorado through Monday. With 1 to 2 feet possible from Vail down through Aspen and Crested Butte. Areas of The San Juan Mountains may see 2 to 4 feet of snow! The Sangre De Cristo mountains are looking at 1 to 2 feet.
There will be a bit of warm up for Denver on Monday and then right back into the cold and snow by Tuesday.
