DENVER (CBS4) –
After a slightly calmer Wednesday, we are back to strong winds in many areas of Colorado. These winds will stick around for us through the night and tomorrow ahead of our next system heading for Colorado.
Snow will ramp up in the mountains overnight into Friday morning. This snow will keep going through Saturday. We have Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories for most mountain areas. Some spots could pick up well over a foot of snow!
For the Front Range and Denver, we may see rain and thunderstorms on Friday afternoon. Some areas of the far eastern plains could see some heavy rainfall. This will be our third stormy Friday in a row for the Front Range!
After midnight, we may see snow or a rain/snow mix in Denver but there won’t be much accumulation. Between 6,000 and 7,500 feet there is the potential for 2-6 inches of snow while areas in the Front Range foothills and mountains above 7,500 feet (including Summit County, the Winter Park area, I-70 above Genesee, and Highway 285 above Morrison) have the potential for well over 6″.
Sunday is looking gorgeous! We head back to the upper 60s with plenty of sunshine!
