5 Things To Know About This Week’s Winter Storm Hitting Colorado
After a week or so of downright spring-like weather, we're getting back to reality in Northern Colorado for weather on Wednesday with a new cold front and winter storm set to roll through.
While this one isn't expected to bring nearly as cold of temperatures as the last one did a couple of weeks ago, it's expected to cool things off quite a bit and bring some snow to us along the Front Range and much more needed powder to the mountains.
- Once we get through our "spring tease" on Monday and Tuesday, the front arrives Tuesday evening starting as rain and as the temps drop, the snow will fall.
- Snow will arrive in the mountains very early Wednesday morning and should arrive along the Front Range later in the morning/early afternoon. We should see anywhere between 2-4 inches with a little more possible in the foothills.
- Temps will be hovering around the freezing mark so it won't get nearly as cold as the last storm we had barreling through here.
- It looks to be a fast-moving storm that could affect the Wednesday afternoon commute but as Wednesday night approaches, most of the snow will be done.
- Temps will drop into the teens Wednesday night with highs in the 30's and back to the sunshine on Thursday.
