Is a boom snowfall for Denver on the table? A look a the latest data
There's been a lot of excitement (good and bad) around some of the GFS modeled snowfall forecasts with the snow event tonight and tomorrow. While its been producing some impressive totals for not just Boulder and Fort Collins but the entire metro Denver area... just how likely is this to occur? For reference, below is its 18z forecast. It has 10 - 14" across the Denver area, with upwards of 15" for Boulder, and an east to west 8 - 12" up around Fort Collins: Crazy, right? MOST other data cont

Ready for more snow? Snowfall forecast totals as next storm arrives tonight to Northeast Colorado
Another round of snow for the region is quickly approaching. We still see some pretty notable differences in the data as to how much snow we can expect, but general consensus is for another accumulating snow event for the Front Range foothills and adjacent plains. The latest HRRR shows snow on the increase across the northern and central mountains this afternoon, with some rain and snow showers spilling onto the northern urban corridor by late afternoon: By 9pm this model has widespread snow f

Winter storm update: timing on track, boom and bust potential in latest data
Our must trusted models have backed off snowfall potential this evening for Northeast Colorado, even as many of the high-resolution models continue to show pockets of "boom" snowfall totals across the urban corridor. Look: Denver's Top Five March Snowstorms The NAM has consistently shown the potential for some banded snowfall this evening. We continue to think it's likely overdone on that potential... but should t

A snowy February comes to a warm end, March begins with a chance of snow on Sunday
February 2020 will end colder and snowier than average for Denver, and really much of Colorado.

Monday & Tuesday could be interesting, snowfall impact on the way for some
It'll be interesting to see how the Monday and Tuesday system will play out for Denver and the other metro areas because it is part of a weather transition into a quieter phase for the last two weeks of February. We posted to our PRO users the monthly outlook and how the drought numbers will change during that time. The bottom line, after this next weather maker the storm flow will become less active again. Speaking of active, the star

Cold front arrives tonight, will bring another chance of snow to the Front Range on Sunday
Yesterday's snow has given way to a warm mid-February sun and plenty of blue sky across the region to start your weekend. Temperatures have rebounded quite nicely, really, with highs around 50 degrees this afternoon across the metro area. Even with temperatures in the 30s and 40s through midday, plenty of snow melt was underway with the clear skies and warm sun doing work. Here's a look at midday temperatures across the region: From above, all the fresh snow is quite evident. A few clouds ov

Thursday AM update: The chance of snow on the increase this evening, will carry through Friday
We continue to track our next chance of snow across Northeast Colorado in a setup that will prove very difficult to pinpoint where the heaviest totals will ultimately end up. That chance of snow will begin as early as this evening's commute along the Front Range and carry well into the day Friday. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the urban corridor and adjacent plains. It goes into effect at 6 pm this evening and will remain in effect through Friday.

GFS continues to paint widespread heavy snow across Northern Colorado on Friday, other data is less convincing
We continue to watch the forecast for Thursday night and Friday as our next system will bring snow first to the high country, then to the plains to end the week. For the metro areas and plains this is a tricky setup, as we're likely to see banded snowfall deliver several inches in some locations and next to nothing a few miles down the road. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for areas north of Denver (including Loveland, Fort Collins, and Greeley) as this is the area

A cold night ahead across Colorado, next chance of snow arrives later this week
The coldest temperatures since November 27th are on the way for overnight as lows will be near to and fall below zero for some. Of course, the cold outlook implies the ice and snow won't have much of a chance to melt until Wednesday with a bit of a warm-up to come. So, be careful on those roads as they won't have too much recovery time today. Snowfall totals We won't spend too much time verifying the snowfall forecast that we produced, as it was well in line with observations. Denver official

Heavy snow blankets the high country, weekend snowfall forecast for Denver, Northeast Colorado
So far things are playing out as anticipated, with heavy mountain snow and winds in excess of 60mph making for quite a wintry day across the Colorado high country today. This evening roads are snowpacked, visibility is poor, and while not as windy as earlier in the day wind continues to be an issue in the mountains. Take a look at this scene from Vail Pass this evening: Mountain resorts are already reporting nearly two feet of snow in some cases, with Breckenridge Resort tweeting a storm tota
