Mild Saturday to give way to another winter blast
It's been a bit of a weather roller coaster this week in Denver, from near record highs last weekend, to lows in the single digits Thursday, to another day with highs nearly 20 degrees above normal today. Get ready though, because temperatures are getting set to fall once more as we head into Sunday night and Monday.
In addition to the cold, there will be a chance for snow in Denver. Models have been pretty consistent with bringing QPF to the Front Range Sunday night and through the day Monday. At this time snowfall totals appear to be in the same range as our other recent systems. With still some model run inconsistencies and being greater than 24 hours out from the event will hold off on totals at this time. The NAM (of all models) has been at the forefront for higher snow totals, while the GFS and Euro have been slightly lower over the last few runs.
For now will broad-brush colder temperatures and a chance for snow to start the week, and wait for additional model runs before zeroing in on a snowfall forecast.
The extended forecast remains unsettled. We'll be going much more in depth with the forecast for the coming week and extended period in tomorrow's State of the Atmosphere, stay tuned!
