UPDATE, 5:20 a.m. Tuesday: Snow is falling in Denver. The National Weather Service now forecasts 3 to 7 inches of snow during the day, with just under 2 of those inches possibly coming before noon. Then the forecast calls for the snow to get heavier and stay heavier through at least midnight.


Keep your boots and shovel and complaints at the ready because Tuesday’s going to be annoying, too.

The National Weather Service says we can expect a precipitation-free night Monday with a light breeze and a low around 12 degrees, and the break will continue into Tuesday morning.

But then it’s back. Snow is expected to start up again after noon, and the wind is going to start up with it. NWS predicts a steady wind at 5 to 9 mph with gusts up to 16 mph. The high will be around 21 and we could get 2 to 4 inches of snow.

Then, buckle and bundle up because the NWS forecast for Tuesday night simply begins, “Snow.”

There’s more, of course. The extremely certain snow “could be heavy at times.” The wind will continue — getting gustier, even — and the wind chill value is forecasted as low as -3 degrees. The high will be around 8 degrees.

By the morning, we could have another 3 to 7 inches of snow. And it’s probably going to keep snowing throughout Wednesday morning.

For those of you keeping score, that’s something like 10 to 17 inches of snow in Denver since this all started.

Weather and weather forecasts can change. Does anybody ever really know anything? Or anyone? This story will be updated.
