Snow falls in Denver, with threat of power outages and slushy roads

Snow falls in Denver, with threat of power outages and slushy roads”

Accumulation could total 1 to 4 inches along the Interstate 25 corridor and up to 6 inches in the foothills, according to the National Weather Service.

Meanwhile, traffic was a little slow in the Denver metro area, but most of the snow that fell did not immediately stick to the roads.

Snow is expected to fall all day in Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins, but 50 percent of it will melt because the ground is still warm from heat that was absorbed on Saturday and Sunday.

Further to the northwest, mountain passes near Steamboat Springs saw several inches of snow. Up to a foot is possible in the higher elevations west of the city.

There is a freeze warning until 10 a.m. on Tuesday and a winter storm warning until 3 p.m.in Denver. "Drain outdoor sprinkler systems to protect them from the well below freezing temperatures", forecasters said in the watch, which will go into effect at midnight Monday.

Temperatures were expected to drop rapidly Sunday evening, followed by heavy snow later Sunday night and into Monday. By Thursday, the high could be 71 degrees.
