INTERACTIVE RADAR: Spring storm to drop up to 2” of snow in Denver metro area

The storm was accompanied by a 40-degree temperature drop (but don't worry: since this is Colorado it won't last long).

DENVER — A spring storm is expected to bring up to 2” of snow to parts of the Denver metro area, with more accumulation expected farther south along the Palmer Divide.

A 40-degree temperature drop compared to Wednesday’s warm temperatures accompanied the storm, and flurries are expected overnight Thursday into Friday.

Lows Thursday night will dip into the teens, and snow and freezing fog will blanket the Front Range.

Friday morning will stay cold, but highs in the afternoon could reach the 40s.

The state is under a stay-at-home order due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but if you have essential travel, the National Weather Service said conditions could be dicey in the mountains and along the Interstate 25 gap between Castle Rock and Monument.

If you don’t have to travel, it’s a good evening to do the right thing and stay at home. Since this is Colorado, the cold spring weather won’t stick around for long.

Highs will reach the 60s again on Sunday, and the 70s are coming back for the early part of next week.
