The mountains are continuing to get some good snowfall, the snow-pack has improved dramatically in the past week! Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories will remain in effect in the high country through early Tuesday for another 3-6 inches of snow.
Denver and the eastern plains will stay cold and windy, but only see a few flurries overnight. In Denver, only 3/10 of an inch of snow has fallen so far this season. By the end of December, Denver averages around 20 inches of snow.
Expect cold temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday, with highs only in the 30s for Denver and the plains, but no snow. Scattered snow showers will continue in the mountains, but the amounts will be lighter and no weather advisories are expected to be posted. Highs will be cold in the mountains - staying in the 20s if you are heading up to ski or snow-board.
By Thursday, another storm system will begin to develop west of Colorado. Snow will be increasing in the mountains, but the weather will stay dry across the metro are and eastern plains. Temperatures will moderate a little with highs in the 40s to low 50s over eastern Colorado and upper 20s to low 30s in the mountains.
This next storm does hold potential to bring snow to the Denver area Friday afternoon and Saturday! As we round out 2021 and begin 2022, there is a chance for snow in Denver Friday night into early Saturday. We could see a few inches along with much colder weather!
Highs will be in the 40s for Friday, then drop into the 20s and low 30s for highs on New Year's Day. Lows will tumble to the teens or even single digits by Saturday morning!
