DENVER (CBS4) – Early Tuesday storms in Wyoming and Montana will fall south through Colorado until Wednesday night. The storms will drop 20-30 degrees compared to Monday, but they won’t bring much snow as there is little moisture.
In addition to the cold, wind is likely at times, especially in the late morning and afternoon hours of Tuesday. Northwest winds can ascend to speeds of up to 45 km / h in Denver and across the city corridor. Temperatures are likely to stick to lower altitudes throughout the day in the 30s, while most mountain towns remain in their teens and 20s.
The second storm booster will bring cold air, so Wednesday will be even colder, with temperatures in most parts of the state remaining below freezing.
In terms of snow, limited moisture content means that most mountainous areas will reach 1 to 4 inches, up to a maximum of 6 inches. The highest amount of snow should be achieved in mountainous areas north of State 70.
Many neighborhoods in the subway area only get traces of accumulation by Wednesday late. The southern and western sides of the city can get a little more, while the foothills (above 6000 ′) can reach up to 3-4 centimeters in some areas.
The sunshine returns to Colorado on Thursday, and relatively warmer weather begins to return on Friday. Dry weather is expected for at least 7 days from Thursday.
