The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) has issued a hazardous weather outlook for much of the Denver/Boulder area and the surrounding mountains. Possible chances of snow accumulating through the night accompanied by cold northwest winds through Wednesday which could be gusty at times.

“A weather disturbance will move across the area [Denver/Boulder] tonight and will bring snow to the mountains with accumulations of 2 to 5 inches along and north of I-70. Elsewhere there will be a good chance of rain and snow showers in the higher valleys and northern Foothills with an inch or two of wet snow possible. Across northeast Colorado the best chance of rain showers will be near the Wyoming border.”

Rain or snow, the precipitation accompanied by this front will be a small relief to the current state of drought in this area which is being measured at a moderate level according to the U.S. Drought Monitor on Thursday, October 13th.

Not as bad as one might expect, better than the current state of drought in the Northeast
