Will It Snow In Denver By New Year's Day?

Mark Hake

The question of whether it will snow in Denver, CO, and the surrounding areas by New Year's Day is now looking very good. It is two days before New Year's and it now looks like there will be a good chance that there will be snow in Denver.

The reason is that several weather forecasting sites predict there is a good chance of snow by Friday, Dec. 31.

For example, Weather.com now indicates that on Friday, Dec. 31, the temperature will be 34 degrees Fahrenheit (F) and that there will be PM snow showers. It also indicates there is a 73% chance of precipitation.

On Saturday, Jan. 01, Weather.com indicates that the temperature will be 18 degrees F and that there will be snow in the morning.

In addition, AccuWeather.com indicates that on Friday, Dec. 31, the temperature will be 36 degrees and indicates snow in the PM. It also shows that there will be "a little morning snow" on Jan. 01.

In addition, the US Weather Service 7-day forecast for Denver and the surrounding area is very clear about snow. It shows that the maximum prediction for precipitation for Dec. 31 is 71% and for Jan. 1 it is 57%.

That means that on Friday, Dec. 31, as well as Sat. Jan. 1, there is a much greater chance than not that there will be precipitation (i.e., probably snow).

Historically There Has Been Snow

According to the site howmuchwillitsnow.com, Denver has had snow during the New Year's week in four of the last six years. This occurred in 2015, 2017, and 2020.

This can be seen by the blue boxes in the last row of the chart below from the site howmuchwillitsnow.com.

That leads to a very high probability that this year, as well there will be snow in Denver and the surrounding areas during week of New Year's Day.

Bottom Line

Expect to see snow in Denver on or before New Year's Day this year.
