Rain and Snow Possible Tuesday

As discussed in yesterday's State of the Atmosphere, we are tracking several weather makers this week for Denver. The first arrives tomorrow, and will bring a quick shot of rain and snow showers to the Front Range. The next one to watch will arrive late in the week, and could be a bit more organized than tomorrow's system.

Biggest discrepancies with Tuesday's system lay in where the best shower activity will occur. Both the GFS and EURO bring several tenths of precip for Denver, while the the NAM and Canadian both keep the bulk of measurable precipitation to across the southern Denver metro and Palmer Divide. We expect not everyone will see the rain and snow tomorrow night, but where precipitation does occur and changes to snow we could see a sloppy inch or two of accumulation.

Temperatures ahead of the front will be warm. Highs Tuesday are expected to be comparable to today for many with widespread 50s expected across northeast Colorado. With that, any precipitation that does fall will likely start as rain before mixing with snow overnight Tuesday.

This will be a quick hitter. Wednesday the sun returns and will be another pleasant day with highs in the 50s. Expect some wind Thursday as we warm even further, before our attention shifts to the next weather maker due in Friday. Stay tuned!
