Heavy snowfall to Colorado mountains, less likely to Denver

DENVER (KDVR) – A few days of snow to hit the Colorado mountains is great news for ski resorts in the area looking for help from Mother Nature. The first snow arrived on Wednesday night with a slight total of light. The snow then became widespread and dense on Thursday before tapering off on Friday morning.

There are winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings for deep snow that can reach more than 20 inches in some mountain locations. Commuting will be challenging through Thursday as snow combined with wind makes travel difficult.

A frigid front will slide across Denver early Friday, bringing with it a few hours of rapid snowfall. It’s also going to be windy as the cold front sweeps over the subway bringing temperatures down to the 30s. There’s still a possibility of light build-up in the city with most places being able to see less than an inch down. Some spots south and west of downtown can rise to nearly two inches.

The question remains is the “official” reporting station at the airport that records the “measurable” amount of snow that would need to be about 1/10th of an inch? If so, we’ll end our days without snow. If not, the streak will continue and we’ll easily pass one of the longest days between the last and first snowfall, at 235 days set in 1887.
