DENVER(CBS)- We have a First Alert Weather Day for Colorado on Saturday.

Another storm system is heading toward Colorado just in time for the start of the weekend. This next storm wont be as heavy as the last two to hit the state. The combination of a moisture packed trough and another Canadian cold front will change things up a bit during the day on Saturday.
