Calm start to the weekend, but snow returns late Sunday

Adjust Comment Print

Temperatures will still be mild in most locations Sunday, reaching highs in the 30s.

Temperatures will remain below freezing throughout the workweek, so the 5"-8" of snow that the Valley received during Friday's storm will not be going anywhere anytime soon. Any additional snowfall is expected to be light. This cold front will be bringing with it yet another shot of Arctic air and gusty winds. Denver and the Front Range will see 0-1 inches with 0-2 inches possible on the northeast plains. Still, it's all relative, and we're looking at overnight lows in the mid-teens downtown, with our more rural suburbs sinking to the single digits.

Even though winds will decrease Saturday as temperatures hold in the teens, lowest wind chills will still drop below zero.

Snow whips through the area but the cold is not in as big a hurry to leave. Unsafe wind chills are possible by Tuesday morning, ranging from 10 to 20 below zero. Tuesday will be cold as well with highs only topping out in the teens.

Plane skids off runaway in northern Turkey, no injuries
One of the passengers, Fatma Gordu, told Turkish state-run news agency Anadolu the crash sparked panic on board the flight. The plane, belonging to private low-priced carrier Pegasus , had arrived from the capital Ankara. "We tilted to the side".

The chill was driven by strong north winds that not only produced sporadic flurries, but generated 8- to 14-foot-high waves on Lake Michigan that caused some shoreline flooding. The colder temperatures will linger through most of next week. Wind: S 10-15. High: 41.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with light snow developing.

Sunday: An 80% chance of rain and snow from about noon through early afternoon, then light snow. The northeastern plains will see some rain / snow mixed showers through the evening that will clear out by midnight.
