From 70s on Monday to snow on Tuesday, back to 70s by Thursday and maybe 80 degrees on Saturday! Springtime in Colorado can be a roller coaster ride and 2021 is no exception!
The last snowstorm of the month brought a quick shot of light to moderate snow to the mountains and the Denver Metro early Tuesday. Skiers enjoyed 3 to 6" of accumulation, while the Denver Metro area had 1 to 3 inches of snow.
The official tally for DIA was 1.1" of new snow. This added to our already hefty snowfall for the month - putting it at 33.6 inches since March 1st. Only the big snow storms of March 2003 could outdo this month - and only by a mere 1.6" So folks, you have made it through the second snowiest March on record - dating back to the 1870s!
A few lingering snow showers will quickly end and skies will clear overnight. Lows will be chilly by morning with readings in the upper teens to middle 20s for lower elevations and single digits and teens in the mountains.
On Wednesday, skies will be sunny and temperatures will climb to the low 50s in Denver, with upper 30s to mid-40s in the mountains. The end of the week will be delightful with sunny skies and much warmer weather. Highs will be bouncing back to the upper 60s and low 70s Thursday.
Even warmer weather is coming for Friday through Sunday with sunshine and highs in the mid-70s Friday, near 80 degrees on Saturday and upper 70s on Sunday!
A cold front will approach Colorado next week with increasing clouds on Monday and a chance for mountain snow and rain showers for lower elevations on Tuesday.
