The January Forecast – What to Expect for Snowfall

January is typically slightly “warmer” in Denver than in December and typically, snowfall in January is dry and powdery with low water content. This, however, is not always the case. Snow type is determined by where the storm originates. If the storm is Pacific in origin, the snow can be wet and heavy like spring storms. On the contrary, if the storm originates in Canada, the snow will likely be all powder. For the month of January, Denver typically sees an average of 6.4” of snowfall.
