DENVER (CBS4) – Our strong spring storm is still having a dramatic affect on Colorado weather. The spinning low brought up lots of warm moist air from Texas and the gulf coast on Saturday helping to spark severe weather and a few tornadoes in eastern areas of the state. One twister touched down about 11 miles southwest of Yuma and another a few miles outside of Burdett. Along with bringing in a few showers and storms to parts of the Denver metro area along with bb size hail in a few spots.
The storm system will be mixing in with another shot of cold air overnight Saturday into Sunday morning. This will bring in another round of rain changing over to snow for the Denver metro area. This will make things slick early on Sunday morning.
For the foothills and the mountains the snow machine will continue. With several more inches expected through Sunday morning. The difference is the focus for heavy snow has shifted from the Front Range to the northern and western mountains through Sunday.
So far we’ve seen some pretty impressive moisture from this storm with one total over 4 feet and it will only go higher as tonight’s surge moves into the region.
Looking ahead to next week it starts to clear up and warm just a bit before a new storm approaches the region by Thursday.
The following is the latest information from the SNOTEL network showing the current mean of Colorado’s snowpack.
