DENVER (CBS4) – A deep, trough of low pressure situated over the southwest part of the state continues to send waves of moisture into cold air trapped over the Rocky Mountain region. The latest blast of moisture created heavy bands of snow over parts of Denver for the Thursday afternoon commute. This caused several accidents in and around the Denver metro area.

The snow will be fast-moving with only minor accumulations. But, with the quick, intensity of the snow driving issues sprung up quite quickly Thursday afternoon.

The big trough of low pressure will be stuck in place for Friday as well. With another blast of moisture and energy coming through for more snow across the region during the day on Friday. In fact, Denver and the Front Range may start Friday with morning drizzle, flurries and fog. With snow showers developing in the afternoon.

By the weekend, the pattern should break up enough to allow temperatures to warm into the mid 30s and 40s in Denver with a lot more sunshine.
