DENVER — The coldest air in years is expected in much of Colorado including the Front Range and Metro Denver. And it’s forecast to be here for a week.
“Temperatures will quickly fall from the 40s to the 20s by Tuesday afternoon as snow develops across Denver and the Front Range,” Chief Meteorologist Dave Fraser says. “Snow will continue into Wednesday morning with as much as 4″ possible by the morning commute … which will be treacherous with temps in the single digits.”
A High Wind Warning is in effect Monday night through 5 a.m. Tuesday for the Front Range Foothills west of metro Denver.
A Winter Storm Watch goes into effect for metro Denver for Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon.
The snow will continue through Wednesday with 6-12″ possible on the ground in metro Denver by Wednesday night. Heavier amounts will be in the Foothills west and south of the city.
