More Snow in the Forecast

Areas along the Rocky Mountains can’t seem to get a break from the snow. Though it’s spring time, March does tend to be Colorado’s snowiest month. This past Tuesday, the Denver area picked up about 9 inches with up to 23 inches being reported in some of Denver’s western suburbs.

It doesn’t look like Colorado will get a break from the snow anytime soon as another low pressure system will bring areas of moderate to heavy snow over the central Rockies spreading into portions of the high plains later today into Saturday morning. Over a foot of snow will be possible over the foothills and mountains with 5-10 inches possible into the plains, mainly south of Denver. Around the Denver and Boulder area, 3-6 inches is expected through early Saturday. Gusty winds across the plains of Colorado could also lead to areas of blowing and drifting snow tomorrow morning with sustained winds between 20-30 mph.

Conditions will improve across the region on Sunday with dry conditions along with a gradual warming trend. This will definitely be good news to residents as well as travelers. Earlier this week at the Denver International Airport, hundreds of flights were grounded with nearly 160 arrivals and departures canceled on Tuesday. There were approximately 5,000 stranded travelers.
