Is it election day when the city finally gets the first snow of the season? – CBS Denver



DENVER (CBS4) – Cloudy skies and cool temperatures will again be found in Colorado on Tuesday. Snow is very likely in the mountains while Denver and the Front Range have a good chance of having rain and snow showers.

The best chance of precipitation in the Denver metro area will be after 2 p.m. Tuesday, although some rain or snow is possible earlier in the day. And while snow is possible, it is unlikely to accumulate in metropolitan areas. Even more unlikely is the risk of snow at the airport where the official snow measurement for the city is recorded. So it looks like Denver will wait even longer for the first measurable snowfall of the season.

It’s a different story in the mountains where more snow will create slow travel. Some snow can be heavy at times and winter driving conditions are to be expected along I-70 between Georgetown and Avon, as well as on the higher stretches of Highway 40 above the Berthoud Pass. and the Rabbit Ears collar.

Most of the mountains around Aspen, Vail, Winter Park, Breckenridge and Steamboat Springs will receive 1-6 inches of additional snow through Tuesday night. Grand totals since Monday morning will vary from 5 to 12 inches.

For the Denver metro area, the best chance of precipitation will be during the Tuesday night drive, when light rain could mix with light snow. But again, no snow accumulation is expected outside of the mountains.

As this storm moves away from Colorado early Wednesday, the weather will improve rapidly.
