Wind gusts are calming down on the I-25 corridor after seeing gusts up to 45 miles per hour through the afternoon. The eastern mountains and foothills will keep strong winds overnight with gusts up to 60 miles per hour possible.
Winds aren’t the only weather factor in the mountains tonight, snow showers will continue overnight in the central and northern mountains. Although snow showers will stay light, the combination with gusty winds will create reduced visibility on the roads.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in place in the northern mountains until 11:00 a.m. Sunday.
The Front Range and I-25 corridor will see cloudy skies, flurries, and light snow showers Sunday morning. Denver won’t see any accumulation from this storm but will see light snow on and off from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
The Eastern Plains will see around one inch of snow from Weld County all the way to the I-70 corridor. There could be some isolated higher totals in the far northeastern corner of Colorado near Julesburg.
Colorado’s central and northern ski resorts will pick up three to six inches of snow with six to 12 inches possible on the higher peaks in the northern mountains.
High temperatures will be in the low 40s in Denver on Sunday with sunshine peeking out in the afternoon after morning flurries.
Highs climb to the mid 50s in Denver on Monday with another round of snow moving in Monday night through Tuesday. This storm could bring some accumulation to the Front Range. Most computer models are showing zero to two inches possible for the I-25 corridor but I will be fine tuning those totals on Sunday.
Temperatures will drop to the 30s on Tuesday with breezy winds. Snow will clear out by Tuesday evening.
