Just as one storm system begins moving out of Colorado, another system is working its way into the state Friday night bringing additional snow to Colorado.This system will provide enough moisture to allow for snow to continue to fall in the mountains throughout the weekend. The western facing slopes will be hit especially hard with an additional 12-18 inches of snow possible before the system progresses out of Colorado by Sunday. A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for this region, set to expire Saturday evening.Northeastern Colorado has already received up to 6 inches of snow during Friday's system and could pick up an additional 1-3 inches through late Saturday and early Sunday.This storm is expected to bring some light snow to the urban corridor with the best chance of accumulating snowfall west of the I-25 corridor, and mainly north of I-70.As for Denver, Friday evening is expected to bring light snow that will continue into the morning hours. It will be mostly cloudy and cold tomorrow for Valentine's Day with a high in the mid 30s.Sunday will remain cool, but as the system moves out the region, conditions will dry out and skies will clear up. Early next week looks sunny and seasonal with highs in the 40s. We will keep an eye on a larger storm in the eastern Pacific next week. At the present time, it looks as though that storm will stay off the coast of California for a while.To see the weather conditions around the state, check out our Live Cams page.To get an hourly forecast, check out our My 24/7 Weather.
