Good afternoon, Denver. There may be Weather.
That’s Weather, not weather, because technically we are always experiencing some kind of weather and right now we’re talking about wet and possibly frozen Weather. The kind that messes up your business.
OK, now that we’ve got our terms defined, here’s the deal.
Rain and snow showers are likely in Denver before 9 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. The temperature is on its way down to an overnight low around 26 degrees and the winds will pick up into the evening. Tonight is shaping up to be “blustery” before midnight.
Total possible snow accumulation: 2 to 4 inches.
My highly scientific method of looking out the window in the Golden Triangle tells me this stuff is nigh, which means you’ll want to commute with caution and maybe even courteousness.
As a reminder: There are rules about when and where the city plows and, per those rules, it’s unlikely your street will be plowed. Residential snow plows are only deployed when a storm requires full deployment of Denver’s fleet of large plows and “enough snow” has accumulated that the smaller residential plows “can be helpful.”
The Weather is forecasted to continue into tomorrow morning, likely clearing up after 8 a.m., the NWS says.
Poll: Who drives worse, “Denver natives,” transplants, or whoever is right in front of you on the road?
Please shout your response into the void.
(Note: we will not be checking the void and releasing the results of this poll because we want to continue living in a peaceful city.)
