Specific snowfall forecasts for specific cities will almost certainly change in the coming days, but for now the long range models are generally predicting 6-12 inches of snow in the metro area over a 24 hour period between 12 p.m. Monday and 12 p.m. Tuesday. It could be certainly enough snow to cause schools and business to close on Tuesday, February 4.
The heaviest snow will likely fall late Monday evening through early Tuesday morning based on the current speed and expected track of the storm which was still off the coast of Japan on Thursday morning.
Ahead of the storm for next week, there is a small chance for light snow in the Denver metro area from late afternoon through early evening on Thursday. Then an exceptionally mild first weekend of February followed by the storm arriving on Monday.
