Denver will once again climb to well above normal temperatures Tuesday as downsloping winds warm temperatures across the Front Range to the upper 50s and lower 60s this afternoon.
By Wednesday, our weather starts to change. Temperatures will still be seasonal, but cooler than highs Tuesday. A cold front will move across the state during the day Wednesday bringing much colder temperatures for Wednesday night and Thursday and a chance for snow. It appears right now as our best chance for snow will be from late in the day Wednesday overnight into early Thursday morning.
As for snow totals, the models have been fairly consistent over the last few days with bringing a 1 - 3 inch event for Denver and a boom potential of a 2 - 4+ inch event. We have left the Bust Index relatively high for the moment as we are still more than 24 hours out from the snow flying. Watch for final snowfall and Bust Index numbers to be adjusted over the next day or so.
Temperatures will rebound in a hurry after this system moves through. By Saturday highs will be back in the mid 50s under mostly sunny skies.
We'll continue to have updates on the changing weather and issue new posts as necessary as we head into Wednesday.
NAM 2meter TempsNortheast Snow
The northeast is getting pummeled by winter this week. Snowfall totals in excess of 6 inches will be commonplace from DC to Boston, with driving winds creating blizzard conditions along the coast. Mid-Atlantic ski resorts that haven't seen snow like this in over a year are rejoicing.
Behind the snow will be bitter cold temperatures for the northeast. Lows Wednesday will fall well below zero across a good portion of Pennsylvania, New York, and Vermont, with single digit lows forecast closer to the shoreline.
