Chilly and soggy in Denver this afternoon

in Weather
Typical spring weather in Littleton Colorado

DENVER — After a warm weekend, Mother Nature has turned a cold shoulder to Colorado! Temperatures tumbled behind a strong cold front yesterday and while today won’t be as cold, temperatures are still well below average.

We’ll see highs in the upper 40s to near 50s degrees this afternoon. Along with the cold, we’ll also get some moisture. We saw some light snow overnight but the roads are mainly just wet for the morning commute. We picked up about an inch of snow near Denver, with 2 to 4 inches from Westminster north to Fort Collins. Accumulations of 8 to 16 inches can be expected in the mountains above 10,000 feet and will stay the heaviest in the mountains north of I-70.

DIA’s security lines were completely empty because of the blizzard and we have a creepy video to prove it

in Weather

DENVER — It makes sense: given that a bunch of flights were canceled, folks felt no need to participate in the necessary evil of the security line at Denver International Airport Wednesday afternoon.

But it’s still an eerie sight to see a place that’s typically one of the most packed in Colorado empty in the middle of the day. There were, however, plenty of Transportation Security Administration officers on hand. So maybe the headline of this article should be “there’s no wait at DIA security right now!”

We have numbers weather advisories and warnings that will start on Wednesday as this storm passes through. A powerful area of low pressure will start to move through Colorado overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday. As it does, our winds are going to start cranking, and heavy snow will fall.
