Denver is About to Experience Summer and Winter Temperatures Within 24 Hours

Potential Winter Storm For SE Wyoming Wednesday

Denver International Airport said its crews are ready for the snow but warned travelers to check the status of their flights in case of any disruption.

But meteorologist Derek Schroeter predicted as much as 12 inches of snow would accumulate Monday in areas like Carrabassett Valley.

The Colorado State Patrol Wednesday urged "employers to consider either fully cancelling work today, or at least allow employees a half day and to go home by noon". Clearly, we are NOT getting the worst of it! Wednesday and Thursday nights the lows are expected to drop into the teens. And thundersnow struck parts of South Dakota, including the capital city of Pierre, according to the report. Temperatures in the state capital of Denver reached 85 degrees Fahrenheit (30 Celsius) on Tuesday, but dropped down to 35F (2C) on Wednesday and were expected to be 21F (minus 6C) by nighttime, forecasters said.

However, if the snow persists long enough, a dusting could accumulate on elevated surfaces, such as decks, patio furniture, mailboxes, and your vehicle parked outside, as well as on grassy areas. The high winds are expected to create waves of 15-20 feet or more, which is likely to cause flooding, erosion and other damage along the shoreline.

By the way, Thursday is the day that the big Central Plains winter storm we've been talking about will be at peak intensity.




A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring.

Minneapolis, a major Delta hub, will be impacted by this snow, so there will likely be system-wide air delays due to this. But the intensity of the coming switch has caught forecasters' attention - and they're warning people to keep a cautious eye on conditions that could quickly turn risky. It will eventually dry out Thursday afternoon with highs in the 40s. "Wind will likely be quite strong through the Colorado Springs region Wednesday evening and night, with 0 - 3" forecast (most on the north side) so some impacts certainly expected.

Southern Maine will be spared the heaviest of the snow, with less than an inch expected along the immediate coast and 1 to 3 inches further inland, according to Dustin Bork, a meteorologist for CBS affiliate WGME in Portland.

"A normal drive in the morning is forecast to transition to blizzard conditions in many areas through the afternoon and the night", Colorado Department of Transportation Executive Director Shoshana Lew said in a press release Tuesday night.

There is also the potential for sleet and freezing rain with accumulating ice near the border of Iowa and Minnesota, which may lead to power outages and unsafe travel.
