Biggest Storm of the Season?

Winter storm set to bring beneficial moisture to the Front Range

A good run of the models this morning has boosted confidence in the forecast for our winter storm due in late Friday night. Models are increasingly consistent in bringing a good dose of wet snow to the Denver metro area, and the chance for significant snowfall totals across the region. With that we are upping our snowfall forecast from this morning to 6 - 12 inches for Denver, but resisting the urge to go with the NWS forecast of 8 - 14” --- for now. Areas north of Denver may see more rain and therefore less snow.
