Cool temperatures, rain and then snow!

Rain showers on the plains, mountain snow

Another storm system will approach Colorado on Thursday.  Our first wave of wet weather will roll through early tomorrow morning.  We could see wet roads for the morning drive.  Scattered storms and showers are possible throughout the afternoon.

In the mountains, weather advisories are in effect through Thursday for 4 to 8 inches of snow. The stormy weather pattern will continue for Friday and Saturday with several more inches of snow expected in the high country.

Friday will be cloudy, cool and wet as the storm slows down and settles into the central Rockies.  Highs will be in the upper 40s in Denver on Friday. Moderate to heavy snow is likely in the mountains and a good soaking rain is expected for the plains.

Snow will mix in with the rain Friday night and change to all snow by early Saturday.  There is a good chance for accumulating snow in the Denver area Friday night and Saturday with 3 to 6 inches possible!  

It will be interesting to see how much snow falls on Saturday as so far, 2016-17 is on track to be the least snowy on record for Denver.  The current record has stood for a very long time - 21.3 inches way back in 1888-89.  

Skies will clear on Sunday, but temperatures will stay cool - just the mid 50s in the Denver area.  Monday will be mostly sunny and milder with highs around 60 degrees.
