Tuesday Afternoon Update

We're still tracking areas of snow, mostly pockets of it now, that will move over the region through midnight. Some areas could tally up another 1 or 2 inches, mainly favoring areas along and west of I-25 through the evening. Snowfall reports through early afternoon from this system have been mostly in the range of 1 to 3 inches. However, the small amount of snow that has fallen today has made the Tuesday commute very dangerous with multiple accidents citywide.

As the snow tapers off, we turn our attention to the cold! Sub-zero air is moving south out of Canada through the northern plains and will reach Colorado overnight. Denver will hit 5 to 10 below zero and will only climb into the single digits for highs Wednesday. This cold air will try to squeeze any existing humidity out of the air, so a few areas of flurries and light snow are still possible.

The 2:00 pm temperatures were quite cold, and you can easily see the cold air plunging southward!

Light snow is possible for the remainder of the week, meanwhile the cold will last for a few days. We'll see the coldest temperatures on Thursday morning. Further, it'll likely be Friday before we rebound into the 20s and the late weekend before we have a chance to break through the freezing mark.

Stay warm over the coming days, and be sure to subscribe for all the latest updates as we continue to track snow and cold across Colorado.
