TODAY'S DENVER & FRONT RANGE COLORADO WEATHER FORECAST

QUICK NOTE — Denver and front range weather can get a bit spicy–be prepared for whatever’s coming our way by bookmarking this page and checking back daily. 

This is not your typical Denver weather forecast page that you can get from your local news channel. I’m not going to tell you if it’s mostly cloudy or partly sunny. That’s kind of boring. 

Instead, I share the factors that impact different weather scenarios so you know exactly what’s going on and what to expect. From thunderstorms to crazy winds to random snow storms, I serve up frequent updates on current conditions in real time with a side of sass. Think of it as your Denver and Front Range weather forecast and daily entertainment rolled into one. #yourewelcome

I am Kody Wilson, a 2012 graduate of the University of Northern Colorado (GO BEARS!). I have a Bachelor of Science with an emphasis in Meteorology. I started independently forecasting the weather in the Denver and Front Range area of Colorado in May of 2017 to share my love and passion for the weather with the general public. Weather forecasting is a fascinatingly complicated endeavor to uphold in the state of Colorado. Through education, engagement, and a little humor, I like making the process of learning and understanding Colorado climatology fun and informative.

February 20th, 2024

Strong wind continues in high country. Next storm Wednesday.

Good mernin and happy Tuesday my early risers, night owls, insomniacs, and neuro spicy besties.

Here’s your weather summary for the rest of the week!

Today: Continued blowy wind across the higher foothills, continental divide, and southern Wyoming where gusts could exceed 60mph as our mountain wave persists under zonal flow.

Wednesday: A disorganized storm system will move across the region. Surface low pressure will develop in western Kansas. Here’s what that means:

– More mountain snurfall especially in the central and northern mountains along and north of I-70. Highest accumulation potential through Wednesday is at pass level and on west facing slopes. I think the Hwy 40 corridor between Winter Park and Steamboat will be the big winners this go around where ever a FOOT of snurfall is likely over the next 48-60 hours.

– Strong downsloping winds are likely especially in southern Colorado and could gust over 60mph especially in Huerfano County and going onto the Raton Mesa.

– Sometime in the afternoon, the surface low will drag a cold front south through Wyoming, Nebrasky, and eventually into Colorado where northerly winds of 15-25mph G 35mph are possible along with a few scattered rain/snow showers especially in northern/northeast Colorado, SE Wyoming, and western Nebrasky. I’ll continue to monitor model trends today and will issue more updates if needed.

Thursday: Residual rain/snow showers are possible.

Friday – Sunday: Dry with light alpine snow showers possible in the mountains as the next trough of low pressure approaches from the west. Especially on Sunday.

Next week: Another likely spicy change in the weather pattern. Too early to discuss specifics. Stay tuned. I’ll keep you updated.

Saw an Amazon truck drop a kid off at school this mernin. I didn’t know that was an option. 😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜

I’ll see myself out.
