Staying mild and mostly dry in Denver with mountain snow

We do have the chance for a stray afternoon or evening rain or snow shower in Denver, but it doesn't look like much.

COLORADO, USA — FORECAST BY: Meteorologist Chris Bianchi

FORECAST AT A GLANCE: Mild and mostly dry weather continues for the Front Range while the mountains get more snow tonight after a brief break in the action.

We could get a stray rain or snow shower in Denver this afternoon or this evening under increasing clouds, but it doesn't look like much. We're not expecting any accumulation if we do see any rain or snow. Just don't be too shocked to see a few raindrops on the windshield!

Meanwhile, the mountains get a general brief breather today before their snow picks back up tonight. Look for driving conditions to go downhill in the mountains after dark tonight, in particular.

Winter Weather Advisories cover most of the mountains through tomorrow morning, with another 6-12 inches of accumulation likely. 

Avalanche Warnings are up for most of the mountains, as well. Backcountry skiing will be extremely dangerous, due to likely avalanche triggers. 

After today, the Front Range looks like it'll remain dry and seasonal (40s) through the rest of the week. 

The next system to bring snowfall into Denver doesn't look like it'll push in until early next week. Healthy mountain snowfall looks like a sure bet, and the Denver area *could* get in on a few inches of snow, but the core of this system will stay well to our north. 

We'll have more details on this storm as it gets closer, but plan on a much colder week next week and with a good chance for at least some snow on Monday or Tuesday (or both).
