Snow storm expected to begin early Friday night
DENVER – The first round of precipitation arrived in the Denver metro area Thursday in the form of scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms in the Eastern Plains.
Shower activity ended around 8 p.m., but several storms are set to move through the area and bring snow this weekend.
Friday has started out quiet, but the next storm is expected to arrive Friday night around 6 p.m. and stay Saturday with accumulating snowfall as temperatures plunge below freezing this weekend.
Computer models have indicated 6 to 8 inches of snow in the Eastern Plains for this round of snow, with 1 to 2 inches of additional accumulation from Sunday night into Monday.
Two to 4 inches of snow are possible in the metro area with 3 to 6 inches possible in the southern and western suburbs.
As much as 5 to 10 inches could fall in the foothills.
A third, fast-moving storm will pass though the metro Sunday night into Monday with little accumulation expected.
