Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in place for nine counties surrounding the city, with a Blizzard Warning in effect for Weld County.
Southerly winds will become gusty across the eastern plains and Palmer Divide Friday evening. Scattered snow showers will begin in the mountains.
Snow and strong winds move into the Front Range Saturday afternoon with the strongest part of the storm arriving late Saturday afternoon into Sunday in the form of scattered rain and snow. It’ll transition to all snow in the evening.
The foothills will get anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of snow, while the mountains will see at least a foot of new snow.
Another round of snow begins Sunday evening then clears Monday afternoon. There will be a couple of dry days next week before the next shot at snow arrives again Thursday.
