DENVER (CBS4) –
A storm cruising through Colorado is bringing rain and snow to many areas. Snow continues to fall in the high country, with mostly rain in lower elevations and eastern Colorado. This is our third Friday storm system in a row!
Rain likely in Denver well into the night, with snow continuing to fall heavily in the high country. We have numerous Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories for our mountains. Many areas could see 5 to 10 inches of snow through tomorrow morning.
Here in Denver and the Front Range, we may see light snow overnight into Saturday. Up to 1″ of accumulation is possible on the grass, rooftops, and vehicles in the metro area by daybreak Saturday. Then up to another inch is possible before the precipitation changes back to rain Saturday afternoon.
Temperatures will also remain cool on Friday and Saturday with 40s and lower 50s. And we’re still going to be dealing with gusty winds up to 40 mph.
Closer to Denver, a Winter Weather Advisory has been posted for the foothills of Jefferson, Boulder, and Laimer Counties for 2-4″ with isolated amounts up to 6″.
Sunday looks to be gorgeous! Make some outdoor plans! The Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins area will enjoy a beautiful Sunday with sunny skies and highs in the mid 60s.
