Snow and 40s for Monday, March 21st

Monday is the first day of spring (if you go by the calendar). And what’s more spring like than another Colorado snowstorm. A cold front will come through the Rockies and Front Range tomorrow and will bring another helping of snow.

Here’s the details for Monday:

  1. Snow is expected to start right around the morning commute time. There won’t be a very large amount of snow on the ground as you head out.
  2. Snow accumulations should be 1-2 inches for Central Denver, 1-2 inches for the Foothills and 3-4 inches for the Palmer Divide/Castle Rock/S. Denver area.
  3. Highs in 40s.

What you need to know, currently.

The first week of spring ushers in the threat of severe weather across the South and Southeast U.S. including tornadoes, hail, and thunderstorms.

Starting on Monday, the severe weather is likely to be most impactful in the eastern half of Texas, bringing the possibility of hail, strong winds, and tornadoes.

Tuesday is likely to be the most intense day, moving to Louisiana and Mississippi. Large tornados are possible and have the potential to occur at night— making them even more dangerous.

On Wednesday, the system will move towards southern Alabama, Georgia, and into northern Florida, the Carolinas.

We are already seeing a highly active tornado season which typically runs from March through May/June and peaks in May. Meteorologists say that drought conditions will fuel a more intense tornado season.

There is a high likelihood that vulnerable communities may be impacted by these storms. If you, or someone you know, is located in a risk zone, this is the perfect time to brush up on tornado safety and familiarize yourself with the closest tornado shelter.
