The Colorado forecast is calling for snow leading up to the holiday weekend. For now it looks like Denver and the Front Range can expect light snow or flurries Sunday, with much more accumulation in the mountains.
Two different systems are headed to Colorado. The first will move in Thursday, bringing several inches of snow to Colorado's mountains. Denver will be dry as this system moves into the area. Along the Front Range we're expecting highs in the low 40s with partly cloudy skies in the afternoon.
The second system moves into Colorado on Saturday night. Several more inches of snow will fall over our northern, central and southern mountain areas, with only a chance for light snow or flurries Sunday afternoon east of I-25. Right now, some models are indicating up to 20 inches of snow, total, for both systems across the central and southern mountains. It is expected to move out by Sunday evening, pushing into the Midwest.
Temperatures will turn colder as the second system moves in. Highs along the Front Range Sunday dip back into the 30s.
As always, this forecast will continue to change and evolve. Check back often for updates!
