But when it gets really bad, your kids may have to take refuge in the bathroom.
The National Weather Service is warning people to expect heavy rain for much of the next week as the Rockies experience a weather system dubbed the “Chanson Platinum” that has the potential to bring as much as three inches of rain to parts of Colorado and Washington.
“The Chanson Platinum is currently forecast to continue through Friday and into Saturday and could reach 4.8 inches,” the weather service said in a weather update.
“We are expecting a significant impact from this event.
The severe weather event is likely to bring rain to much of southwestern Colorado and western Washington, with significant impacts in eastern Washington.”
The weather service added the Chanson is forecast to cause some damage to the Northwest Ridge Trail and the Grand Canyon Trail.
“This could have significant impacts on the area’s water resources and wildlife, and could have adverse effects on the ski resorts in the area,” the agency said.
The weather bureau issued a snow advisory for the Denver area through Saturday morning.
The National Weather Center says the snow will begin to accumulate in the mountains and snow could start falling on Sunday morning.
In Colorado, a total of more than 1.4 million homes and businesses are under a snow emergency.
The NWS also issued an advisory for people in Colorado and Wyoming to be prepared for snow showers.
The storm is expected to impact roads, bridges, highways and bridges, and cause damage to vehicles.
The Chandon Platinum is located in the northwestern part of the state.
The first rain showers occurred Thursday night and Friday morning and were accompanied by heavy snow.
The meteorological office issued a warning for those areas of the Rockies, but the snow began to melt Saturday morning and could start to fall in early Sunday.
