A change is in store for the weekend as a minor storm system swirls into the state Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning. This storm will finally bring some badly needed snow to the mountains, with 4 to 8 inches expected by Sunday afternoon. (snow tapering off by lunchtime)
Denver and the eastern plains stayed dry for Saturday with highs in the 50s and 60s. Clouds will increase Saturday night and colder air will move into the area for Sunday. Most of the moisture from this storm will be intercepted by the mountains, but some flurries will be possible in Denver and across the plains Saturday night into Sunday morning. Expect highs on Sunday in the 30s in the mountains and 40s and 50s for lower elevations.
Monday and Tuesday will be dry and mild again as temperatures bounce back to the 40s in the high country and 50s and 60s! across the plains.
Another storm system will begin to move into Colorado by next Wednesday. Clouds will increase and some snow will develop in the mountains. Highs will be in the 30s in the mountains. For the plains, We will have a chance for rain and snow in the metro on Wednesday with highs in the 40s.
Thursday will be cooler for Denver, but it looks like the location of the storm system will determine if we see partly cloudy skies or a quick shot of snow. The mountains will get most of the snow from this system. It should be strong enough to drop 8-16 inches in the mountains. Highs will be in the 20s over the high country and upper 30s and low 40s here in Denver and the plains.
