Snow predicted for the Denver area


European model calls for 2 feet (60cm), but meteorologist Joe Bastardi thinks it will be measured in inches.

Then he adds, “it’s not global warming, it’s just the way the atmosphere does things.”

  1. It will be allot more than that in the mountains though – we expect 1 to 3 feet there!
    Unseasonably cold air will settle over the region late this week with accumulating snow, heavy at times, expected through Friday.
    Also this is after mid May. Global Cooling at its best!

    1. This heavy snow is occurring 2 weeks before summer season, if you will……

      So much for these idiots 17 years ago who were telling us that snow was going to be a thing of the past in mid-winter by now!!!

  2. Up to 3 feet of snow for Colorado

    …HEAVY SNOW EXPECTED FOR THE MOUNTAINS AND NORTHERN FRONT RANGE FOOTHILLS
    WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY…

    .A strong spring storm will drop south across the Great Basin
    Wednesday night and Thursday. It then moves slowly east across Colorado Thursday night and Friday. Significant snow is expected with this storm if it continues on the current forecasted track.
    If the storm track moves further North, then the Southern Front
    Range Foothills may receive much less snowfall.

    This storm is expected to bring rain and possibly snow to the
    Urban Corridor including the Denver Metro area. The coldest air and best chance for snow is expected to be Thursday night and Friday for the Denver area. Significant snow for the Denver area can`t be ruled out at this time.

  3. Is it coincidence that Netflix added that absurd travesty “The Day After Tomorrow” to its stable recently or am I losing it ?

  4. It’s a very alarge lingering event, on some of the peaks, it’s probably feet. It was 28 degrees at noon here, and hundreds if miles south the storm is now reading 23 degrees, which for Colorado is like average nightfall February temperature, I know, I frequent that area too, not sure how the atmosphere does that!
