Denver weather: What to expect Thursday as the biggest storm of the season wraps up

Denver’s latest report was over 8 inches of snow overnight, making the overnight storm that’s lingering into early Thursday the biggest of the season thus far.

A Winter Storm Warning is active until 8 a.m. Thursday morning. The National Weather Service reported overnight that parts of the city saw as much as two inches of snow per hour.

The high today will reach 32 degrees as the snow wraps up, leaving about an inch more on its way out. Tonight will be partly cloudy, with a low of 17 degrees.

Most locations won’t get any more snow this morning, but the southeast area of the city could get up to two more inches.

The NWS warns to use caution when traveling this morning as the immediate Denver metro got hit the hardest from the storm. Roads are slick and snow-packed in and around the Front Range, and side street travel has been difficult for some Denver metro cars. There are reports all over the city of cars getting stranded.

Friday will rise above freezing, to 40 degrees with clear skies. Gusting winds could exceed 30 mph and Friday night will drop to 18 degrees. Light snow is expected to redevelop in the mountains and continue on and off through the weekend. Blowing snow from Thursday’s storm in the plains and any fresh powder at altitude is possible, making travel difficult.

Saturday has a 20% chance of snow after noon. It will be sunny, with a high of 37 and a low of 15.

Sunday will be sunny with a high of 40 a low of 19.

The start of next week will have multiple days in the 50s.
