DENVER – Yet another storm pushed through Colorado, missing Denver, but dumping snow in the mountains.  Many of the ski resorts reported 6 to 12 inches of snow in the past 24 hours and a few had over a foot!  Arapahoe Basin had 18 inches in the last 48 hours and Loveland Ski area reported 17 inches of fresh powder!

The snow showers linger in the mountains, but will gradually diminish overnight.  Some flurries will also develop on the northeast plains early tonight, but accumulations will be minor.

It will be a cold night across Colorado with lows in the teens to low 20s for lower elevations and in the single digits and teens in the mountains. 

Wednesday will be a little warmer with highs in the 40s to mid-50s on the plains and in the 30s to low 40s in the high country.  Thursday will be even warmer as temperatures climb to near 60 degrees in Denver, with 40s in the mountains.

Another cold front will bring chilly air and a chance for snow to Colorado starting Friday afternoon and continuing into the weekend.  Friday will turn colder with highs in the 40s in Denver. Snow will be likely Friday night and Saturday with a few inches possible.  Highs will drop into the low to mid-30s by Saturday.

We really need more snow in and around Denver.  So far, we've only seen 13.2" of snow at Denver International Airport and that's less than half of what we see in a normal season.
