It's been more than a hundred years since we've had this little snow..................1.5 inches so far.
DENVER - Snow and cold temperatures will return to the metro area after a warm spell that included a record high of 70 degrees at DIA on Tuesday. The Colorado weather forecast calls for 2 to 7 inches of snow for the metro area starting Wednesday evening.
9NEWS Meteorologist Ashton Altieri says Denver International Airport recorded a record high of 70 degrees at 2:44 p.m. Tuesday, breaking the old record of 69 degrees set in 1924.
A powerful Pacific cold front is racing toward Colorado Wednesday morning. This same storm produced a rare tornado in Oregon earlier on Tuesday and heavy flooding rainfall across Washington state.
Winter weather and travel advisories have been posted for the Colorado mountains through Thursday afternoon.
Ashton says after temperatures reach 50 degrees in the metro area on Wednesday, things will cool down and a few light rain showers are possible Wednesday afternoon. The rain may mix with snow by the evening commute and continue overnight into the morning drive Thursday.
