Record Cold, Snow Moving In

Light Snow Expected Through Saturday Morning

After a brief break from the storms Friday afternoon, winter will return to the Front Range Friday night.

Another strong cold front is sliding southward from Wyoming into Colorado. The front will spread a mix of rain and snow across northern Colorado overnight Friday and into Saturday morning. There will also be a slight chance for some light freezing drizzle Saturday morning, so watch out for slick spots on the roads.

This next front will bring another surge of cold air to Colorado and will likely set new records by Saturday morning. Saturday's record low is 25 degrees. Tomorrow morning will be closer to 20. The afternoon won't be much better with highs only in the low 30s.

This cold front will not be a huge snowmaker for Denver, but it will drop 2-5 inches across northern Colorado and the Front Range foothills through Saturday morning.

Snowfall in the metro area will be up to 2 inches. Most of the snow will move east by the afternoon with only a few flurries late in the day. For the Rockies game Saturday night, expect mostly cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid 20s.

A few light snow showers will linger over the state Sunday morning, especially over the eastern plains. The afternoon will be warmer and drier though with partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 40s. A pleasant warming trend will return to the region early next week.
