The best snowfall will be in the mountains from the Vail and Aspen areas to the north and west where a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for 5 to 10 inches of new snow will stay in effect through Sunday evening at 6 p.m.

For the Denver metro area and lower elevations along I-25 on the Front Range, rain and snow showers late Saturday night into Sunday morning may leave up to 1 inch of snow on a few lawns, but none on paved areas.

Foothills areas will get a welcome break to the dry conditions with 1 to 4 inches of new snowfall, most of which will fall prior to noon Sunday.

9NEWS Meteorologist Marty Coniglio says that this system is a little unusual in that the eastern plains should get better snowfall than the Denver area.  Marty is forecasting 1 to 3 inches of snow for most of the northeastern plains from early Sunday morning, finishing up late Sunday afternoon.

More mountain snow will start with a new system moving in Monday.  Denver, Boulder, Ft. Collins and surrounding areas will only get a few light rain or snow showers from that little storm.

Marty says that there is a better chance for a few inches of new snow here along the Front Range on Wednesday.
