UPDATE 7:19 p.m.: The snow has been light so far, but it smells pretty bad outside, so I’m starting to believe in this storm. The National Weather Service has updated its forecast to just a bit less snow — 2 to 4 inches overnight it says. Another inch or two Monday morning, supposedly, so now we all start the mental calculus of whether or not schools or city jobs are delayed or canceled, and approximately how grumpy to be.
Plow drivers are “on standby” — exciting! Since the Denver plow rules are squishy, your best bet is to sign up for the city’s plow tracker. (Another update, about 8:30 p.m. — the plow tracker has been activated!)
Earlier weather report below.
The weather Denver’s been expecting should be getting into gear around 3 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.
We’re looking at a high of about 30 degrees, with the NWS expecting anywhere from about 3 inches up to about half a foot of snow through midnight and a low around 12 degrees.
The snow could then continue Monday morning through noon, according to a current forecast.
Things this is:
- Pretty normal sounding storm
- Early deadline for whatever things you didn’t get done out in the world even though you knew this was coming
Things this isn’t:
- An ideal storm for before and after photos (because most of what we’re expecting comes near or after sunset)
- A scrape-your-car-in-your shorts storm (too cold for most of you weirdos, although I guess there’s always gotta be one)
