Winter storm watch issued; heavy snow coming to Denver this weekend – FOX31 Denver
DENVER — A long period of heavy snow is on the way beginning Friday evening that is forecast to last through Sunday afternoon. Snow is expected in a couple of different waves during the weekend with the heaviest coming Saturday night into Sunday.
The National Weather Service has already issued a Winter Storm Watch for most of northeastern Colorado including metro Denver. It goes into effect Friday afternoon and lasts until 5 a.m. Monday.
Accumulation will range from as low as 8 inches north and east of Denver to between 10-14 inches in the city and could push to 12-18 inches south and west of downtown. There may be spots in the foothills that could get close to two feet.
Roads and traveling will become treacherous.
It will be much colder and windy all weekend. Highs Saturday and Sunday won’t get out of the 20s and lows will be in the teens.
Light flurries could linger into Monday morning. The drive to work could be very challenging.
We’ll stay chilly pretty much all next week with more snow in the forecast late Wednesday into Thursday … and, yes, that too could be accumulating snow.
