Good afternoon! Snow showers may start before 5 p.m. today, according to the National Weather Service, and intensify through the evening.

Weather5280 expects the heaviest snow starting around 7 p.m. tonight. That means this afternoon’s commute may not be too bad, but there’s still plenty of reason for caution.

Tomorrow, we might see a high of 15 degrees and about an inch more of snow, NWS reports. Temperatures should return to the high 40s by the weekend, NWS reports.

Weather5280’s meteorologists expect 2 to 5 inches along the I-25 urban corridor, as does NWS, with higher amounts possible west of I-25.

In conclusion, if you are ready to leave work, then please take this advice:
