Early week sun, late week snow
Welcome to February. It’s not normally one of Denver’s snowiest months on average, but there should be snow later this week.
Monday will be warm: 59 degrees under partly cloudy skies, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder. The clouds will remain while the temperature drops to 33 degrees overnight.
Tuesday will be the warmest day of the week, with a high of 64 degrees and sunshine. The overnight low will once again be 33 degrees.
Wednesday there is a 20% chance of rain after 11 a.m. with a high near 62. Rain could shift to snow at 9 p.m. with a low around 25.
Snow will last into the morning on Thursday. That storm system is expected to bring snowfall to the mountains Wednesday and colder temperatures by Thursday. Potential snowfall totals could reach 12 inches in the northern Front Range Mountains and Park Range, leading to bad driving conditions. More light snowfall is possible Friday, and there is an expected arctic air mass.
All told, Denver could get a few inches of snow later this week, taking early aim at the February average of 14 inches.
