Brace Yourselves, Denver! Winter Storm Packing Heavy Snow Heads Our Way

Calling all my fellow Denverites! Looks like Mother Nature’s decided to remind us it’s still winter. A powerful storm system is brewing off the Pacific coast and set to unleash its fury on the Rockies, Front Range, and yes, you guessed it, Denver!

Get ready to dig out your shovels and snow boots because forecasters are predicting significant snowfall starting late Wednesday, March 13th. We’re talking upwards of 6 inches for the city itself, with even higher accumulations in the foothills west of Denver and the Palmer Divide to the south.

But wait, there’s more! The mountains are bracing for a true winter wonderland, with some areas potentially seeing a whopping 3 feet of snow! If you’re a ski bum itching to hit the slopes, this might be your dream come true. But for those of us who prefer our commutes a little less treacherous, well, let’s just say it’s time to prepare for some travel disruptions.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Heavy, wet snow: Thanks to upslope winds, the snow is forecast to be heavy and wet, making shoveling a workout and potentially bringing down tree branches.
  • Slick roads and possible closures: Expect treacherous driving conditions with significant snowfall. There’s a good chance some roads, especially in the mountains, might get closed for safety reasons.
  • Possible power outages: Heavy snow combined with strong winds can lead to power outages. Make sure you have a plan B in case you lose electricity.

How to prepare:

  • Stock up on supplies: Get groceries, medications, and anything else you might need in case you get snowed in. Don’t forget to grab some rock salt for your walkways!
  • Winterize your car: Make sure your car has plenty of antifreeze, good windshield wipers, and snow tires if you live in an area that gets hit hard by winter storms.
  • Stay informed: Keep an eye on the latest weather forecasts and road conditions. Local news stations and the National Weather Service are your best bets for reliable information.

While a snowstorm can be disruptive, it can also be a beautiful opportunity to snuggle up with a hot cup of cocoa and enjoy a winter wonderland right outside your window. So stay safe, Denver, and embrace the snow!
