DENVER - Cold temperatures will continue in Denver and across northeastern Colorado tonight with some areas of fog and even a little freezing drizzle possible. Low temperatures drop to around 15 degrees in Denver. Bundle up in the morning!  Some light snow will fall from Boulder through Fort Collins and Greeley - perhaps up to an inch overnight.

A number of winter weather alerts remain in effect for the mountains. Snowfall of 3 to 6 inches will be possible tonight and Tuesday for the mountains along and west of the Divide..

Temperatures will climb nicely over the next few days and there will be plenty of melting!  On Tuesday, expect highs in the upper 40s to low 50s in the Denver area. There may be areas of patchy fog early, but skies will clear by mid-morning.

In the mountains, the snow will diminish in coverage and intensity, but a few more inches will be possible, especially along and west of the Continental Divide.

Wednesday, we will warm closer to 60 degrees for Valentine's Day! Skies will be mostly sunny on the plains, while snow-showers will continue in the mountains, with temperatures in the upper 30s to mid-40s.

The chance for flurries returns on Thursday, with highs in the 40s. 

Friday and Saturday will be dry and milder with highs in the 50s for lower elevations and 40s in the mountains.

A new storm will begin to move into the state next Sunday and Monday.  The track of this storm is not certain this far in advance, but it does show some promise of being a pretty good snow-maker!

SNOW UPDATE: So far, we've only seen 15.4" of snow at Denver International Airport and that is about half normal at this point in the season.  In fact, we would need about 20 inches of snow before the end of February to hit our normals for the season. 

In the mountains, the snow-pack is roughly at 65% of normal for the season, with the southern mountain areas in the worst shape. The recent storm is helping, but we could use several more good snowstorms!
