DENVER — A brisk northwesterly flow aloft continues across Colorado and it's been helping to pile up the powder in the mountains of Colorado. We'll see more snow in the mountains through early Wednesday, but the totals will be light.
The mountains tend to intercept most of the moisture with this type of weather pattern, leaving Denver and the eastern plains with a few rain and snow showers, gusty winds and cool temperatures.
A minor storm system will push across northern Colorado and Wyoming on Wednesday. This next cold front will also usher in some colder air on Thursday. Expect highs in the 40s on Wednesday, and in the mid to upper 30s on Thursday. This storm will bring several inches of snow to Wyoming as well as western Nebraska and Kansas.
The eastern plains will have to deal with some fog and freezing drizzle from this next storm system - mainly east of a line from Fort Morgan to Limon. One to three inches of snow will be possible over the extreme eastern part of the state near the Nebraska and Kansas borders, but just flurries for the Denver area Wednesday night and early Thursday.
Skies will clear on Friday with milder temperatures expected by Saturday. We'll be in the mid- to upper 50s on Saturday.
Another cold front will arrive on Sunday with colder temperatures and a chance for flurries.
