DENVER — A slow moving storm system continues to bring showers, thunderstorms and snow across the state through Thursday. 

Rainfall totals will be in the 1.00" to 2.00" range along the Front range...a very welcome sight for Colorado!  In the mountains, the snow level will be around 9,000 to 10,000 feet, with more than a foot of snow possible by this afternoon.  Some of the heavier snowfall is expected over the San Juan Mountains - very good news after a pretty dry winter!  

The storm system will swirl away from Colorado and move into the Midwest late Thursday.  

Warmer and drier weather will return for Friday and continue for the weekend.  A few gusty thunderstorms will be possible in the mountains and foothills Saturday and Sunday, but these storms will produce mainly wind and lightning and not much rain.

A weak storm system will move into the central Rockies early next week, bringing a better chance for showers and thunderstorms.
