SNOW "Cancel"?
Accumulating Snow Looking Unlikely...

A fast and dirty update to say that I believe that the possibility of (significant) accumulating snow for the greater Denver metro area still continues to diminish...

My current thinking:
  • While there may be some light, periodic precipitation during the day Wednesday, it will likely fall as a rain/wet snow mix
  • I'm expecting little to no appreciable accumulation in areas below 6000ft
  • Wednesday night into Thursday still bares watching, as colder air filters in by then and moisture (aloft) may stick around. Even still, I'm now thinking that accumulation potential is only 1-3" Wednesday night...
Caveat Emptor: Unfortunately, this is still a (surprisingly) low confidence forecast. I could see some places in the Denver metro area seeing NO accumulating snow through early Thursday as easily as I could see other spots within the same (aforementioned region/time-frame) possibly picking up 3-5" -- primarily Wednesday night.

I'll keep you posted....
