Denver approaching 0 degrees tonight

Periods of snowfall expected this weekend

DENVER - This wintry pattern remains through the weekend and even into the middle of next week. Temperatures will fall down to near 0 for the night. This will keep most of our roads super icy and there will be some small areas of light snow from time to time to keep them slick.

In the metro areas, yes, you may see a bit of snow this evening and overnight. The amounts will stay generally light for now. The mountains will have heavy snow, especially the southern mountains, tonight.  The chance for snow will continue Saturday, and will increase for the Denver area later Saturday into Saturday night. That's the best chance for snow this weekend and may bring a dusting to 3-inches. The mountains will be getting much more snowfall and it will be measured in feet for some.  This added snowfall increases the total for the already snowiest February ever recorded in Denver.

With the snow from time-to-time, Saturday won't warm much at all. The day will start near 0 and head into the 20s. With any moments of sunshine the snowy roads will be able to melt even though temperatures will stay below freezing. Again, the better chance for snow in the city will be late day.

A similar story for Sunday. A chance of snow (again more likely late day), some hits of sunshine, and cold temperatures. Meanwhile, those mountains catching lots of snow. Ski traffic should be prepared for potentially lengthy delays due to winter road conditions.

A preview of next week remains snowy to start.  Monday will be in the 30s, with a 10% chance of snow. Tuesday into Wednesday another system will bring snow to the metro area and the state. For those wanting a bit quieter and warmer weather, look forward to Thursday and Friday.
