Broncos Sunday Snowfall Update

The next snowfall will push through late Sunday through Monday early morning. As we pointed out in the last update this remains looking like a quick push of minor snowfall. Once this clears, warmer and sunnier days return for the majority of the workweek.

This storm still remains... meh. Not a lot of moisture to work with for snow, but some of us will have some to clean-up by Monday morning. Very little has changed in the modeling. The timing remains about the same. The amounts remain about the same. The placement of the higher totals has shifted subtly. With that said, this appears like a trace to 3-incher for most of us in the city. The exception will be a chance for higher totals closer to the foothills and mountains.

The snowfall gamblers chart for Denver shows the highest confidence in the 0 to 2 inch range for Denver. I'll include some other locations for comparison's sake. Notice for those near Boulder the probability of 4 or 6 inches is present. That indicates the chance of higher totals to the west of I-25.

Probability of snowfall amounts based on 15z SREF

Temperatures will only warm into the 20s Sunday. So the snowfall that moves through will be lightweight. It will be sweep-able in most cases. Monday morning will cool into the teens, 30 and above for the afternoon. Then the week gradually warms into the 50s by Thursday and Friday.

It's been a while since we have seen a snowy AND cold Broncos home game on prime-time television. The game will be played, mostly, in the teens with snow at times. Go Broncos!

For Later
Friday and next weekend, there will be another system moving through the region. We will cover this more in depth in the upcoming SOTA.
