DENVER (CBS4) – It’s a White Christmas on the western slope of Colorado with scattered snow showers. We’ll see these off and on through the day. Unfortunately for the foothills, Denver and the eastern plains it will not be a White Christmas, but snow is expected tomorrow.
A winter storm will move into the region tonight and it could create some travel headaches for those heading home Wednesday, in particular, if your plans take you from Denver to the east into Kansas or Nebraska.
Southwest Colorado is expecting a heavy dump of snow with most of the San Juan Mountains under a Winter Storm Warning. Up to 16″ of snow could fall over the highest peaks.
Anywhere from 4-8″ of snow could fall in a narrow band on Colorado’s eastern plains along with winds that may top 40 mph.
Right now it looks like this storm will just skirt by the Denver area with 0-3 inches potentially falling.
