OOPS!!! It is getting colder because it is getting warmer...

Weather Blog: Get Ready For More Snow

DENVER (CBS4) - Many parks were filled with people reveling in the warm weather yesterday afternoon. I saw many happy people playing kickball and tons of dogs out and about. We’ll be back inside (for those who want to stay warm) again tomorrow as another round of wintery weather rolls in.

Highs today are cooler than yesterday, with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. The first surge of cold air moved in this morning, and the second will arrive later this afternoon. The second one will pack the biggest temperature punch by knocking us down to the 30s tomorrow.

The chance for rain and even possible thunderstorms arrives this afternoon for the Front Range. We’ll see that change to snow most likely after midnight for the Front Range. A big factor that will play a large roll in this system is when that changeover will take place. If it happens early, we could see more snow accumulate. If it’s late to start, then we’ll see more slush and less accumulation.

Denver has the potential for 3 to 5 inches of snow by the time this all wraps up. You won’t see a lot of accumulation on the roads, it will mostly happen on raised and grassy areas.

Some mountain areas could see 8 to 16 inches of snow, while the foothills are looking at 6 to 10 inches. Winter Storm Warnings and Watches are in place for the mountains and foothills for this storm...
