The well advertised cold change in our weather has arrived just as scheduled this morning. Temperatures Tuesday will be 30 degrees (or more) colder than they were Monday, with plenty of wind and a chance for snow up and down the I-25 corridor.
We are still expecting little accumulation in Denver proper, but a few snow showers accompanied by the wind could make travel difficult within the city at times. The best chance for accumulating snow will be south of Denver, where a Winter Weather Advisory has been posted for Castle Rock and the Palmer Divide. The National Weather Service is calling for 2 - 4" in the advisory, with blowing snow and reduced visibilities.
For Denver we'll go with another 0 to 2 inch event, with most locations on the low side. A few snow showers are already pushing into the northern suburbs this morning, and will continue to move south through the morning hours.
A High Wind Warning remains in effect for most of eastern Colorado, where gusts in excess of 50 mph will be possible through the day. If you're traveling east, please be safe as travel conditions will be tricky at times. Here's a look at the already very dusty conditions east of DIA this morning.
