A Chance of Snow Christmas Night
Yesterday’s snow was just enough to remind us what month it actually is after seeing a good round of rain the night before. Today temperatures remain in the 30s across the Denver metro area, with a stiff wind making things feel a bit more uncomfortable then we’ve grown accustomed to over recent weeks. Light snow and wind-blown snow continues across the eastern Plains today making travel difficult (and at times impossible) along I-70, but overall our weather turns quieter as we head into Wednesda
