Well, to say that the weather in Colorado has been fickle this week is an understatement. Most of Colorado experienced some winter weather Monday into Tuesday!
DIA (Denver International Airport) officially received 3.7″ of snow bringing our monthly total to 3.9″ and our season total to 48.1″. Normal season total to date is 53.8″ so we are only slightly below that!
Also, with how wet it was across the state yesterday, I have an interesting fact. We picked up over an inch of liquid accumulation in the 24 hour period which is the largest daily precipitation amount since May 18, 2017! Go us.
As we move through the week, the weather will be calmer for most but we still will remain below average and wetter than normal.
Chance of showers Wednesday evening
Clearing and warming for Thursday through the weekend
Clouds and showers move back for early next week
Snow showers continue through Friday AM
Clearing for the weekend
More rain/snow chances for early next week
The nitty gritty:
Tuesday night: there is a Freeze warning in effect. Make sure you bring in all of your sensitive outdoor vegetation so it does not get damaged. Temperatures will be hovering right around 32° by Wednesday morning.
According to the CPC, we will stay in a slightly below average temperature realm for the next 10 days and a slightly higher precipitation realm for the next 10 days although the bulk of the moisture and the majority of the cold will be off to our west.
