DENVER -  FIRST ALERT ACTION DAY: Our next storm will begin to move into the state night Sunday and Monday.  The track of this storm shows some promise of being a pretty good snow-maker for the mountains as well as the Denver area! Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for SW Colorado for 8"-16" of snow, and a Winter Storm Warning for our central and northern mountains for 6"-12" of snow.  A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for parts of our northern mountains as well~ and also includes Fort Collins..for 4"-8" of snow.

Highs on Monday for Denver will only be in the upper 20s-with snow, then upper teens with snow for Tuesday. The plains could see around 1-4 inches of snow, with up to 6 inches possible north of Denver, up to the Wyoming border.

Clearing skies statewide for Wednesday, with highs in the mid-30s. Milder weather returns for the end of the week. 

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!
