Some impressive totals resulted from the storm system that moved overhead on Saturday!
Falling snow and blowing winds were a dangerous combination on Saturday. The treacherous road conditions caused many road closures through the day, some of those roads remain closed. Check travel conditions before hitting the roadways on Sunday, as slick and slow spots will still be problematic.
Temperatures will remain very cold Sunday with highs only getting into the 20s and 30s for most. With such cold air in place, little melting is expected which means slick and slow spots can be expected throughout the day.
Clouds will redevelop across Colorado, with the best chance for seeing snow showers associated with the 2nd wave arriving during the evening. The snow will develops across the Palmer Divide and local mountains first, then it will gradually spread farther south. The winds will be lighter, but the snow will be the light and fluffy kind, which means it could accumulate rather quickly with areas impacted by the showers accumulating a quick 1-4".
Lingering snow showers overnight on Sunday will not be heavy, but there could any additional accumulation will cause problems for the Monday morning commute. We will be tracking this closely over the next 24 hours.
The snowfall amounts will not be as impressive as those witnessed on Saturday. The snow, in nature, will be fluffier. That means that the accumulations that do develop could occur quickly. The best chance for accumulations through early Monday morning will be over the Palmer Divide and local mountains, and then across southern portions of I25 and the southern mountains. With snow falling overnight, it's possible that there could be some slow drives into work on Monday morning. Something we will continue tracking closely.
Notice though that by the end of next week we will finally start to get warm, and it looks like we will remain pretty warm then for awhile.
