Sunday rain may turn to snow overnight

Rain is expected in the Denver area Sunday, potentially turning into snow overnight.

Snow accumulation in the metro area could be 1 to 3 inches, with a potential of 4 to 6 inches on the Palmer Divide, National Weather Service meteorologist Kyle Fredin said

If it does snow, Fredin said rush-hour traffic in the morning could be an issue. But he suspected that the roads may remain warm, making them wet instead of icy.

The storm should leave by midday Monday, he said. Temperatures will start warming Tuesday.

These types of storms are typical for March, which is the metro area’s snowiest month. Denver is low on snow this winter season with only 19.4 inches so far.

“No question we are on the low side, even pushing some records,” Fredin said.

As of now, Denver’s snowfall total is about where it was last year, in second place historically for the least amount of snow, with only 21.8 inches. The winter of 1888-89 is in first, with only 21.3 inches.
