The snow in Denver will likely be wet in nature with temperatures near the freezing mark. That will keep the heaviest accumulations confined to grassy surfaces. Motorists should still be prepared for slushy and slippery spots, especially on bridges and overpasses.
The presence of colder air in the foothills and mountain passes west of Denver will lead to more treacherous travel. The snow, however, will be a welcome sight to skiers and snowboarders.
