Cold Front to Bring Slight Chance of Snow to Denver

Best chance for accumulating snow stays well north of the city
Another cold front will push south this afternoon introducing another slight chance of snow across the greater metro area. While there is a wide variety between the models on handling this system, I remain fairly confident that most areas across Denver will not see accumulating snowfall. Most locations can expect to see a dusting at best.

North of the city the forecast becomes a bit more tricky. Nearly all models bring several inches of accumulating snow to the Colorado/Wyoming border through Sunday, but they differentiate on how far south that band of better snowfall will make it. At this time all watches and advisories from the National Weather Service remain just north of the stateline up into Wyoming and Nebraska.

Here are two model's ideas for snowfall through Saturday night (HRRR left, GFS right). Both show best accumulation along the state line.

Temperatures will be chilly behind the front, and highs could climb back to near 50 Sunday. We'll see an even warmer Monday before another cold front moves in by Monday night.

We'll go in depth tomorrow with our weekly State of the Atmosphere, enjoy your Saturday!
