Denver weather: Snow flurries ahead Monday


A sunny Sunday in Denver might morph into a messy Monday with likely snow flurries moving into the metro overnight, according to the National Weather Service at Boulder.

The city will see an about 40% of light snow overnight Sunday and into Monday, according to the weather service.

Most of this incoming weather system will miss Colorado completely, instead moving over northern Mexico, but the Front Range still could see flurries and less than 1 inch of snow accumulation, meteorologist Bernie Meier said.

“We are expecting less than an inch of snow out of this,” he said, adding that drivers could see some slick spots at higher elevations on Monday, but that would be “the gist of the impact.”

The snow flurries are expected to start after 2 a.m. Monday and continue until about 1 p.m.

Temperatures will top out at about 31 degrees Monday and the cool snap will continue throughout the week, with highs in the low 30s until Thursday, when temperatures will climb into the upper 30s.

The sunshine should return after Monday’s light flurries, with partly sunny skies the rest of the week.
