DENVER – Back to sunshine after our snow on Monday night. The Denver area saw 2 to 4 inches of wet, heavy snow which quickly melted in most areas. Higher amounts were reported south and west with 12 inches in Franktown, 7 inches in Highlands Ranch, and 7 inches in Evergreen. Officially Denver reported 1.5 inches at DIA.
Wednesday will start out dry, but more clouds will roll in during the early afternoon and we could see more rain and snow into the late afternoon. Wednesday night the rain will either mix with snow or will change completely to snow but any accumulation in the metro area Thursday morning should be very minor. The Denver area should see less than an inch, with a little more possible in the foothills and south of Denver. The mountains may see anywhere from 2 to 8 inches, with more in the higher elevations.
We’re back to warmer temperatures and dry weather on Friday. Highs will head back to the mid 60s. A perfect Spring day! A few rain showers possible for Easter on Sunday. There may be a few showers, but Easter egg hunts should still be a go!
